“I’m about to sign a new brand. Edgard & Cooper, it’s a Belgian pet food company,” he suddenly appeared in the third episode of the third season of the Netflix series Emily in Paris. In Kortrijk, home of the company of cats and dogs, they didn’t know their place. “It’s unbelievable,” says spokesman Frederic de Gesell. We fell out of our seats when we heard that.

Mentioned in a Netflix blockbuster: He remains exceptional. The Kortrijk-based company was founded in 2016 solely to provide healthy food for dogs.
