Galuku Group: Fast Facts

For the past twenty-five years, Galuku Group has created reliable and innovative products in the fields of horticulture, industrial absorbents, pet products, healthy consumer food products, and bio-filtration.

Founder Joe Davids was inspired two and a half decades ago when he saw mounds of coconut waste on the island of Sri Lanka, and thus began his journey to find sustainable uses for coconut products that assist the local communities from which they are farmed.

Litter and Waste

Cat owners in the United States and around the world are tasked with one particularly unpleasant errand: scooping the cat litter. It’s something no owner wants to spend more time thinking about, but the quality of the product deeply affects the quality of life of both cat and owner.

In recent years, the pet product industry has seen an influx of new technology and eco-friendly products, but those innovations have not been applied to the cat litter department.

More cat owners than ever are extending their love of the wild from their domesticated friends to the conservation of nature, and with that they’re seeking products, including cat litter, that are made in a responsible and environmentally-friendly way.

Cat owners no longer want to settle for traditional litter, which is made from heavy, dangerous and wasteful clay and riddled with dangerous chemicals and silica dust.

Cats Comfort and Beyond

Galuku Group answered the call for sustainable pet care solutions. We created Cats Comfort to be the most cost-effective and sustainable option available to cat owners, all without sacrificing the quality of the product.

Through six years of development, Galuku Group turned their original product called Kitty’s Crumble into Cats Comfort, a highly absorbent, compressed tablet created with patent pending equipment.

Comfort Range Pet Products
Galuku Group expands on the successful creation of Cats Comfort litter through the use of similar, coconut-based products in the Comfort Range Pet Products line.

Available products will include:

Key Features

Sustainable Creations
Traditional cat litters are comprised of silica and clay products that do not break down easily and take up extensive space in landfills. These ineffective litters need additional, dangerous chemicals for odor control. Cats Comfort and other Galuku Group products use only eco-friendly, sustainable materials made from 100% coconut waste.

Social Responsibility
As a socially responsible member of the global trade community, Galuku Group believes in a policy of Corporate Social Responsibility and Fair Trade, treating all community members fairly, whether they work with raw material or final product. Galuku Group seeks to improve the communities in Sri Lanka, India, and Malaysia where the coconut waste is collected and the product is manufactured.

High-Quality Products
The Comfort Range Pet Products offer sustainable goods that consumers can be proud of, without sacrificing the quality they expect from top brand competitors.
