Durkha to Open Yak Cheese Chew Production Facility in Nepal

It’s scheduled to open in April.




SEATTLE — Durkha Dog Chew will open a yak cheese chew production facility in Nepal.

The plant has a production capacity of 50 tons per month in the first six months, which will double to 100 tons per month within a year, according to a press release. The capacity is “easily scalable for future growth,” the company stated. It “positions Durkha as the inaugural US-based company to centralize mass production of chews in Nepal, ensuring uncompromised control over quality, production, supply and consistency.”

Durkha’s Cheese Chews contain natural ingredients, including milk and lime juice, and are offered as an alternative to rawhide, according to the company.

The opening is scheduled for April.

Neil Pokharel, CEO of Durkha, brings a wealth of firsthand experience and expertise to the venture, having grown up with Yak Chews as a staple in Nepal. Leveraging over 8 years of knowledge in the Yak Cheese industry for dogs in the US, Pokharel, alongside his partners and family in Nepal, embarked on the journey to establish a one-of-a-kind Yak Cheese factory. This visionary project is slated to commence production in April 2024.

Pokharel expressed his enthusiasm, stating, “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. With the team’s unwavering commitment to quality and product perfection, we proudly introduce Cheese Chews that set a new standard in the industry.”

Mud Bay, a pioneer in natural pet care, has enjoyed a longstanding partnership with Neil and Durkha Dog Chew. Praising the ease of collaboration and exceptional product quality, the director of Mud Bay remarked, “We value the transparency and quality of products offered by Durkha, which is why we have sustained a successful partnership for many years. We eagerly anticipate the continued growth of this collaboration.”

Pet owners seeking premium Yak Cheese Chews and other Cheese-based products are invited to meet Neil and the Durkha team at the Global Pet Show in Orlando in March 2024, located at booth #1144.
