Pet treat company set to exhibit at Glee for first time

Pet treat start-up company PARK LiFE is set to exhibit for the first time at the Glee, which takes place at the NEC Birmingham on June 28-30.


The Ireland-based business manufactures and distributes a range of wholesome, grain-free and 100% natural biscuits for dogs that are full of tasty human grade and gut-friendly ingredients. These come in three varieties – Fris-Bix, Love-Bix and Chill-Bix. 


The biscuits are made from a few simple ingredients – sunflower seeds, peas, potatoes, coconut oil and apple juice with added herbs, berries and super seeds depending on the variety. They are cut into fun bite-sized shapes to keep any pooch happy and satisfied.

PARK LiFE also offers a dental chew called Milk Bone, which is inspired by Yak chews and available in chicken, salmon and lamb flavours. Again using 100% natural, human-grade ingredients which are kind to the tummy, these bone-shaped ‘super chews’ are made with high-quality milk protein and help to relieve boredom, while cleaning teeth and supporting strong muscles and bones. What’s more, they’re high protein, calcium-rich, and lactose-free.


Richard Marles started PARK LiFE after his Golden Labrador Penny suffered a bloated stomach and discomfort after eating a major brand of dog biscuits.


He said: “Our Milk Bones are the safest long-lasting dental chew around. They are slightly softer than a Yak Chew, so the dog can eat the whole thing in one sitting and the pet parents don’t have to take away the final leftover piece like with a Yak chew.


“Our biscuits are grain-free, 100% natural, Vegan (although we haven’t ruled out meat versions), human quality with no added sugar or salt and no hidden junk.

“We’re also working on an exciting NPD pipeline, so watch this space! “


PARK LiFE took a large number of orders from independents and garden centres at PATS recently and is currently in discussion with a number of potential wholesale partners. 


Park Life is also set to exhibit at InterZoo, PATS Telford and many more events throughout 2022.
