    After a bit of sleuthing, I found an importer/distributoir of Orijen cat & dog food (also Acana) in South Africa. I know there are one or two South Africans on the forum, so PM me if you want details. Even better news, from next month they will be launching the products from various vet shops in Gauteng and elsewhere!!!!! :thumbsup::thumbup::thumbup::thumbup: Yippee!!!!!!!!!
    I am awaiting my free samples. Let's hope the blighters like it.

    Yea, great news! Now let's hope it is not a case of Sod's law....

    Also, have you managed to try that holistic raw food yet?

    Maybe pretend that it is the crappiest food you could find for them - they are sure to like it then! ;)

    PLEASE! PLEASE! Where did you find Orijen and Acana in South Africa? I will be going to Johannesburg, but as long as the food is in SA I could always get it from wherever!
    It is FANTASTIC food, believe me!

    THANK YOU! and Regards

    Hello Everyone,

    This shop has Orijen and Acana - went there yesterday so I could give you the correct details:
    Dr Bob's pet deli
    Shop 14: Rivonia Village
    tel: 011 234 4126
    The entrance to the shop is from the open parking, where there is a Clicks, PostNet, CNA, lots of nice small shops and one of the Woolworths entrances.
    Trust this helps!
    :)

    Thanks everyone. I went to the Pet Expo at Gallagher Estate this past Sunday and they had a Orijen/Acana stand there. They are still trying to find more outlets in Gauteng, including Pretoria, but still working on it. I am still ordering from their head office. Costs R60 to deliver to your door anywhere in Gauteng (any size consignment). The importer in SA is Pack Leader Distribution, tel 074 195 9055, contact person Sonja. I was very happy with their service.:D
