My-Fifo is a small family business with the intention to change the way animal and garden products are stored. We carry the passion to reduce waste and eliminate plastic. The first product was a feed bin that successfully reinvented the way we (a family in Somerset) stored our pet feed. We needed to utilise a small space for our two dogs and horse. We (My-Fifo) are a family business based in United Kingdom, here to help where we can.
The feed bins our family were often replacing seemed to do the job without issues. Cheap and simple - what more could you ask for? A simple, plastic refuse bin with a loose clip-on lid to store our beloved pups, Ollie and Oscar's dog food. It took up alot of the limited room we had and the lid become its own burden. The last straw was the puzzling concern of feed disappearing...
...the mystery soon became clear after realising that unwanted guests had nibbled their way through the base. How rude! We decided invest in bigger...heavier...stronger. We brought home an old metal freezer chest, and it did the basics but we were back to very limited room. By the time of nearly reaching the bottom of the chest, we saw the stale feed combining into one solid, stale cluster of wastage. We continued to persist, bending down a little bit lower so we didn't use the entire space, but then the rust came.
Since 2007 we have been selling the best feed storage solutions to many domestic and commercial businesses, accompanied by great customer service. The ultimate storage facility for dry food was born, with the simple concept to save money, reduce waste and - most importantly - keep food fresh! The most influential design of the 'First In, First Out' process of using hoppers, and the unbeatable value, has brought My-Fifo to the forefront of storing solutions... within farms, stables, kennels and catteries, bird sanctuaries and even garden centres!
Instead of frequently buying new bins we needed a quality bin, one that would rotate food to keep it fresh as well as withstand vermin damage and rust. We also wanted to store more than one feed type in the same place, so why not have a go at it ourselves? Several prototypes later, it was 2007. The design you see today is what we settled for - it's the ultimate feed bin!
We're now in 2018. All of our products stay as good as new and some of our bins have now been in full-action for over 98 months (without any rodent break-throughs, damage or replacements!) These bins can store great amounts in pocket sized spaces, maintain a no-wastage storing solution with amazing protection from vermin.
One of the greatest things to come from it all so far, is the people and their animals who we have helped.
