More than 800 brands from 35 countries were nominated for the Animalis awards this year, which took place in Hofburg Palace, Vienna on 3 July, with 60,000 consumers from around the world participating in the voting process.
The judging process used to identify the winning brands is made up of 30% brand valuation, 30% public online voting and 40% consumer market research. The Halti range was again successful in winning Brand of the Year for Apparel and Accessories – Harnesses.
Dr Roger Mugford, owner of Company of Animals, said: “We’re delighted to have once again been recognised by The World Branding Forum and feel honoured to accept this accolade. The Halti headcollar was invented to help make walking the dog a more enjoyable experience, for both pet and owner.
“The Halti brand continues to grow to such an extent that a Halti-branded item is purchased by someone, somewhere in the world, on average every minute of the day. We are proud to market this award-winning product and will continue to share the benefits of Halti to a worldwide market.”
