TIANA – The latest chapter in meaningful pet humanisation


03 August 2021
August 21 sees the eagerly anticipated unveiling of Tiana cat food as the world’s first halal-approved cat food range made with best-in-class, human-grade ingredients and state-of-the-art, freeze-dried technology

35gm trial packs (makes 3.5 meals) will initially be available in chicken, fish and a particularly popular goat, whose rich, gamey undertones provide a welcome alternative to traditional British farmyard fayre.

Swiftly followed by the launch of 250g/500g retail packs


Tiana is the ground-breaking vision of Pankaj Hurria, a senior petfood buyer who had his lightbulb moment when a friend of the family persistently enquired about when halal-friendly cat food might be available, because the lack of an offer meant that she and her friends had to spend hours either tracking down fish-themed brands or assembling home-cooked alternatives made from appropriate meats that might unwittingly be light in essential, feline nutrients.

‘It makes sense,’ comments Pankaj ‘that a vibrant ‘PET HUMANISATION’ programme that embraces every imaginable ‘FOOD MINORITY’ interest from grain-free, BARF vegan and bio-organic to various dietary-specific offerings (hypoallergenic, joints, digestion, teeth..)would ultimately crave a 1st mover in halal-centric cat food.’

Pankaj conducted some speculative research with his good friend (subsequent stakeholder) with Umar courtesy of his specialist full-service comms agency and was amazed to see a 5,000 strong take-up within a matter of days. With a focus of well-educated, millennial/professional women with moderate religious leanings, it became clear that there were 500,000+ Muslim cat owners seeking out a Tiana-style offering.

‘Sustainability and corporate social responsibility also sits at the heart of our offer’ concludes Pankaj, which is why we insist on only using the latest freeze-dried thinking, maximising the range’s taste cues and nutritional worth, whilst ensuring 70% needless moisture isn’t needlessly trundled up and down UK roads.
