More about Manaal Maniyar

Founder at TailBlaze Group of Brands for Dogs | Nurturing the Global Pet Industry with Science, Love and Marketing

Manaal Maniyar started out TailBlaze in Jul’22 after he called it quits to a glorious career in the Silicon Valley of India. His life completely changed, when he got his first paw-kid Einstein (a Labrador) home. The entry of Einstein started adding a lot of meaning to his life and unearthed a huge problem in the pet-nutrition industry, in front of him. He then decided to finally listen to ‘his calling’ and start-out TailBlaze with his co-founder & paw-kid Einstein Entreprador (Entrepreneur + Labrador).

In a short span of time, TailBlaze created stir in the market with its premium and completely organic range of dog-food and treats. The buzz even reached the doors of some of the famous Bollywood actors and Cricketers of the country, who generally are the trend-setters in the pet-industry too. The brand also won 7 National and International Awards for its promise and innovation. Manaal was also featured in the recently announced Business Mint 30 under 30 Rising and Inspiring Entrepreneurs of India’23. 

It was unsettling for Manaal when he came to know that, “51% of the pet-dogs across the Globe were unhealthy, obese, and prone to deadly diseases like cancer. 90% of this problem was attributed to improper diets and lifestyles. It was established that the commercial foods and treats being sold out there were nothing but 'glorified junk', all thanks to the relaxed industry norms.”

TailBlaze at the core stands for Organic, Raw and Nothing Artificial (No preservatives, toxins, or synthetics) - something which every parent likes giving to their kids. The team at TailBlaze takes immense pride in nurturing this new era with love and innovation.

Apart from TailBlaze Foods, TailBlaze now has 2 more brands under its kennel - TailBlaze Groom Vroom and TailBlaze Pawssentials. the brands were co-founded by Madamé Curie (a beautiful Shih Tzu baby) in 2023. The team unearthed that not only diets, but lack of exercise amongst pets is leading to a lot of premature health issues amongst the pets. The aforementioned brands are trying to solve pet-parents’ challenges associated with taking their pets out for exercise.

TailBlaze now exports its products to the USA, Europe, Canada, Thailand, and Middle-East markets. The team which is already 50+ members strong has 2 manufacturing-units in India. All the products of the brands are made in these facilities only after a lot of R&D.

It's time to make a billion tails-blazing across the Globe. It’s time to TailBlaze!
