    Hi all!

    I’m totally new to all this, having spent my life quite happily working for others… and still am, actually.

    But you know how every now and then, you think of something, and say ‘jeez, that would be a great business, idea!’… and then have a conversation with a friend about it and then do absolutely nothing and forget all about it? – yes, I’ve done that a lot in the past!

    But… recently, I had an idea so good, I just couldn’t forget it and just had to follow it up and now, suddenly, I’m having a conversation with an overseas company about importing their pet food product over here and becoming their distributor!

    So, early days, but looking through the forum has already given me heaps of thoughts/ideas, so I’d love to join & ask questions & have discussions.

    So hi everyone!

    Hello MPetrova

    Welcome to the Forums.

    There’s a few Pet people around here including one with a pets Forum that you might want to take a look at.

    All best,

    Lindsay

    Hi MPetrova,

    Congrats for taking that extra step and looking into it a bit further.

    May I suggest that you check out the information provided on the DAFF website.

    Is it a premium brand pet food? I know that I and a lot of other pet owners pay alot of money for high quality dry food, if you are importing a premium or super premium brand and can offer it for a bit less than what is already on the market, you may be onto a winner :)
