We are a family owned and operated business based in Ashburton, New Zealand. We manufacture and distribute top quality Animal Health Products for your cats, dogs and horses. Our Flax Seed Oil is obtained from ripe linseed crops that are fully traceable right back to the fertile Canterbury Plains of New Zealand, and our Apple Cider Vinegar is all produced in Canterbury too.
Originally established over 25 years ago, our parent Company was first founded by a group of seven farmers who had been growing Linum usitatissimum (linseed) for several years and were interested in the health benefits of Flax Seed Oil.
That company grew over the years, and is now New Zealand’s largest producer of cold-pressed, New Zealand grown Flax Seed Oil and Fibre, supplying the Food, Dietary Supplement, Cosmetic and Specialist Animal Nutrition Industries. Then, during the course of the business, they found that they were being approached by veterinarians and animal lovers asking for Flax Seed Oil, as what they were currently buying from health food shops wasn't in the necessary quantities for feeding to animals.
That is when Fourflax was born. Our own brand offering premium Flax Seed Products for animals, meaning that customers can buy quantities suitable for animal consumption, and making feeding Flax Seed Oil easy.
Fourflax was established in July 2010 - in addition to the Flax Seed Products we began with, we now offer a complete collection of top quality supplements for optimum animal health. We currently have over 350 stockists throughout New Zealand and many satisfied customers, as well as distribution partners in Hong Kong, Malaysia, Australia and Taiwan.
In June 2016, our Fourflax supplements range was rebranded to ProVida. As animal health suppliers, we wanted to create a new brand with a more scientific and professional feel, with an underlying sense of veterinary credibility to it. On the one hand, it had to feel like a clinical professional treatment, whilst on the other, it should evoke some of the natural feelings of care and affection one has towards animals….and this was where ProVida was born!
ProVida (pronounced ‘pro-veeda’) bring to animal health a complete collection of wellness supplements for the health and happiness of our animals. That is the essence of ProVida – ‘for life’.
Fourflax Ltd still remains our company name, bringing you three great brands for cats, dogs & horses: ProVida, Nettex & Scruffy Chops.
