A Stradbroke based pet-food company has successfully forged a new market in Bahrain, with help from Dr Poulter.
Skinner's Pet Food is a premium dog food manufacturer employing over 60 people and now providing fourteen dried dog foods, exporting to Europe, Russia, Romania and beyond. To that list can now be added Barhain, although the process wasn't an easy one.
Initially told, incorrectly, that no export requirements were in place for Bahrain, Skinner's therefore dispatched the order of dried dog food to Bahrain, incurring charges, as no Export Health Certificate accompanied the goods.
Skinners then contacted Dr Dan Poulter to ask for his assistance.
Dr Poulter made representations to DEFRA and APHA (Animal and Plant Health Agency). Following this, APHA created a new EHC Certificate relevant, allowing Skinner's to ship to Bahrain.
Roger Skinner wrote to thank Dr Poulter for his intervention and they have now received their first order from Bahrain.
