Ingrid Smolders joins Harley’s Corner as Chief Nutritionist

Renowned orthomolecular therapist brings focus on health and wellness to the Indian pet food market


The Power of Nutrition: From Personal Experience to Canine Expertise

Ingrid Smolders‘ journey as an orthomolecular therapist ignited a deep passion for health and its inseparable link to her love for dogs. While studying the intricate balance of nutrients for optimal human health, her work with dogs facing behavioral challenges sparked a curiosity about their dietary needs. Determined to bridge these fields, Smolders pursued extensive training in canine nutrition. The scientific principles of orthomolecular therapy became the foundation of her approach to improving dogs’ lives.

A turning point came when Smolders’ own dog, Nikki, fell seriously ill. With traditional veterinary treatments proving ineffective, Smolders drew upon her orthomolecular knowledge to craft a specialized nutritional regimen. Nikki’s remarkable recovery solidified Smolders’ belief in the power of food as medicine and ignited a mission to use nutrition as both a preventive and healing tool for dogs everywhere.

A Shared Mission: Harley’s Corner and a Passion for Healthy Dogs

Smolders’ commitment to education led her to found her own academy for Canine Nutrition in Europe. When a student asked about companies specializing in wet food for dogs, Smolders discovered Harley’s Corner in India. Her long-standing connection with India made her eager to learn more about the company. She reached out to Ishmeet Singh Chandiok, the founder of Harley’s Corner. Their shared love for their dogs – Harley for Chandiok, and Nikki for Smolders – laid the groundwork for an exciting collaboration.

Discovering their mutual passion for improving canine well-being, Smolders and Chandiok joined forces. She came on board as Harley’s Corner’s Chief Nutritionist.

It gives me great optimism for the future of the pet space in India.”
