About Us

A heritage brand, spoiling man’s best friend since 1971.

Established in 1971, HUSKY was the first major canned dog food brand in South Africa, leading the market with its innovative chunk technology.

Although much has evolved in our business since then, four fundamental principles remain at the heart of this much-loved South African heritage brand: quality, nutrition, variety and innovation.
