How? Our team has more than a decade's experience crafting dog treat products from Chhurpi. Our production expertise, ISO certifications, sound financials, and strong relationships with Nepali dairies differentiates Nepal Dog Treat from its competitors!

NDT manages the entire product life cycle: sales and product support, Nepali dairy sourcing, dog treat production, quality control, logistics, and distribution.

NDT-GDC

With a goal of creating the best Chhurpi dog treat manufacturer, Govinda and Barry, along with their families, established Global Dog Chew (GDC) in Nepal. 

​​GDC is the exclusive manufacturer of dog chew products for NDT, and NDT is the exclusive global distributor of these products outside of Nepal. The foundation for this arrangement is built on family relations, a contractual alliance, and jointly developed Quality Control/HACCP and Recall plans.

GDC and NDT operate as a single business entity. This relationship ensures the alignment of financial, product quality, and customer objectives.
