SEATTLE — Durkha Dog Chew announced March 5 it will soon open its first commercial-scale production facility for yak cheese chews in Nepal. The facility, which is expected to open in April, will produce 50 tons of yak cheese chews in the first six months of production and will double capacity to 100 tons per month within 12 months of opening.

The new facility gives Durkha control over supply, production, quality and consistency of its cheese chew products, and was built to scale for future growth, according to the company.

“I envisioned providing healthy cheese chews for our fur babies worldwide, and that dream has been realized through the dedication of my partner, and family,” said Neil Pokharel, chief executive officer at Durkha Dog Chew. “With the team’s unwavering commitment to quality and product perfection, we proudly introduce cheese chews that set a new standard in the industry.”

Durkha’s yak cheese chews are made with all natural ingredients and intended as a more digestible, safer alternative to rawhide.

“We value the transparency and quality of products offered by Durkha, which is why we have sustained a successful partnership for many years,” commented a spokesperson at Mud Bay, a tenured retail partner of Durkha. “We eagerly anticipate the continued growth of this collaboration.”

Durkha will be exhibiting at Global Pet Expo in Orlando from March 20 to 22 at booth #1144.
