At Bona we are proud of our history. Back in 1894, the 26-year old Wilhelm Edner opened a small grocery shop in Malmö, Sweden where he sold coffee. The business went well and during the 1910's floor wax came into the picture - a completely new product to the Swedish market. Within five years, floor polish, mop oil, dry floor cleaner, waxing equipment and other floor care products were added. More than 90 years later, those simple origins have developed into a company that leads the industry and sets standards worldwide. Bona brings you innovation, consistent performance and the highest quality the industry has to offer. Our concern for health and the environment, and our exclusive focus are testament to our dedication. You will see it in the longevity and beauty of your floors.

They saw the food processor as a quick and easy way to make fine food and healthy dishes. The prestigious Cuisinart brand is not limited to food processors.

Dingo® brand began with an average dog owner and his flavor loving pup. Dingo was a happy pooch that loved to chew but refused to gnaw on the tasteless, odorless traditional rawhide. In an effort to save his shoes and furniture from his dog’s teeth, Dingo’s owner combined meaty, salty chicken jerky with rawhide to create a treat unlike anything else on the market. This tasty combination of chew and treat gave the best of both worlds and thus, Dingo® brand was born.

When you’re a “my pet is the best pet ever” pet parent, no food could ever be too natural, nutritious or delicious. Believe us, we get it. That’s how we got our start.

That’s when Garth began home-cooking food for his beloved dog, Gracie, to make sure she was eating the most wholesome and nutritious food possible. We’ve grown quite a bit since then—we have a lot more recipes for dogs and cats and a much bigger team—but we still hold true to the vision and beliefs that started it all.
