Australia’s most lucrative dog hair company, Clairol, has confirmed plans to merge with another Australian company, which already owns a significant shareholding in the company.
Clairol has been on the ropes in recent years, as the Australian government has tightened its rules around the import of dog hair.
The Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) has said that dog hair is more than just a product, and the Australian Government should do more to ensure that its products meet strict standards of quality and safety.
“We believe that there should be a strict testing regime for dog hair products, which would be designed to ensure the products are safe and that there are no defects in the manufacturing processes,” said the Clairos chief executive, Peter Williams.
“This is the only way to make sure that the product is of the highest quality, which is a real problem in the dog industry, where it’s becoming increasingly expensive to keep the animals happy and well fed,” he said.
“The whole industry has been at a crossroads over the past few years.
We’ve seen many of our competitors go through a lot of difficulties, and they’ve done the right thing and they have come up with the right solution to address these concerns.
We believe that with a proper regulatory framework in place, we can return to the days of quality dog hair.”
Clairos’ move to merge into Australian rival Clairotech has been met with criticism from animal rights activists, with the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS) calling the plan “cruel, inhumane and unnecessary”.
“The only thing worse than Clairoles decision to move to the United Kingdom is that Clairopes move will allow other Australian companies to continue to do the same thing to animals in the UK,” said HSUS executive director Adam Aronson.
“It is a terrible move that will be disastrous for animals around the world.”
Williams said Claiross’ business model was already in danger, and said it was about making money.
“Clairoys business model is based on the fact that we’re not a pet salon, we’re a hair salon, which means we’re only interested in using the best quality ingredients and the best methods to make our products,” he told The Australian Financial Report.
“As far as we’re concerned, there’s no such thing as a good hair salon in the whole of the world.
There are too many chains that are just selling products to the people who are willing to pay more money for them, rather than making their own products.”
The merger has been expected for some time, and is likely to be completed before the end of the year.
The company is already working with the Australian Competition & Consumer Commission to ensure a thorough test of Clairotys products is conducted.
“Our products are certified by our industry, which we have done through the Australian Cosmetic Ingredients Council and we’re going to do a thorough safety assessment of all our products before we’re able to offer them to consumers,” Williams said.
Clayton’s owner, Joe Lee, said he believed the merger was the right one for both businesses.
“It is the right business decision for both Clairoll and Claires and we are excited about the prospect of Claire’s joining the Claire family,” he wrote in a statement.
“I think it will benefit both companies immensely.”
Claire, the first cat to have a coat of hair, has made her mark in the history of the pet industry.
The cat, who lives at the London Animal Sanctuary, has a coat that can cover her entire body, from her feet up to her ears.
She has become the darling of many, with thousands of people taking to social media to praise her for her natural look and to thank her for the care and care she receives from her owners.
Claire was born on the first day of March, and has become a symbol of animal rights in the country.
She is now part of the Cat Rescue and Cat Sanctuary movement, and a global celebrity.
