His foray into the pet food sector in 2010-11 ushered in a new era for GMPL. This marked the initiation of a pivotal partnership between GMPL and the renowned Italian pet food company, Farmina, specializing in research and formulating food for dogs and cats.

He endeavoured to impart the wealth of knowledge accumulated by Farmina over decades to consumers, emphasizing the unique needs of pets and debunking the one-size-fits-all approach to pet care.
