Buyers from an Italian chain of 8 pet shops located mainly in the Verona/Padua area of northern Italy are joining the pet product buyers from Finland and Spain at the next PetQuip and Gardenex ‘Meet the Buyers’ event being held on Wednesday 2 March 2016 at Lea Marston Hotel, Sutton Coldfield. The Italian buyers are from a family business formed in 1960. Since 2014, the company has also operated an online store. The company stocks pet food, petcare products and accessories for dogs and cats, as well as accessories for wild birds and other garden wildlife. The buyers are looking for pet care and accessories to add to the range, in addition to food and snacks that are innovative or vegan.
As well as the pet product buyers, three garden product buyers from Dubai, France and the US will be involved in the one-to-one meetings with UK suppliers.
