Montego’s winning streak continues
Posted on: 1 April 2020
At the Kaap Agri Supplier of the Year Awards held at the Two Oceans Aquarium on the 5th of March, Montego Pet Nutrition not only won in the Pets & Animals Category, they also took the Overall Supplier of the Year Award - for the fourth year in a row. Montego is one of South Africa’s favourite homegrown pet brands, largely because their products are of such high quality. The ingredients they use are classified fit for human consumption, because they believe pets are part of the family and should be fed that way. The prestigious event took place against the dramatic backdrop of the main fish tank, as the winners in all 15 categories were announced and awarded.
