We have consciously chosen for the products of House Of Kata. We recognise ourselves in the use of natural ingredients in this Koi food. As top sportsmen we know that high quality nutrition is a necessity for top performance. Each branch of sport needs an optimal nutritional ratio between proteins, carbohydrates, fat, moisture, minerals, vitamins and other supplements. Through this knowledge of balanced nutrition for ourselves, we know what to feed our Koi.
Marianne is a pro when it comes to balanced nutrition, as her book ‘Leef je Fit’ shows. In this book she offers the reader a glimpse into the world of a top athlete. She helps to guide you towards a healthier life. Even though we are not all top athletes, everyone needs good nutrition and a few basics for a healthier life.

We started using House Of Kata feed to feed our Koi years ago and have used nothing else since. From 2007 to 2013 we have taken away 573 prizes: 9 x Grand Champion, 2 x Jumbo Champion, 5 x Supreme Champion, 7 x Adult Champion, 3 x Mature Champion,2 x Young Chamion, 10 x Baby Champion, 1 x Most Unique Koi, 2 x Junior Tategoi, 1 x Senior Tategoion various shows: Holland Koi Show, Interkoi Germany, Euro Region Koi Show, Nordic Koi Show, Tyskland, Dansk Koi Show, Belgium indoor koi show. All fish were fed with Royal Mix.
In 2010, we started testing a combination of Royal Mix and Super Grower 50/50 and have seen very high growth rates and excellent skin quality. At the same time, we get excellent feedback from our many satisfied customers in and around Scandinavia. It would not be fair for us to recommend the feed, as we sell it ourselves; just look at the fish, they always tell the true story!

I have been feeding my Koi together with other Spanish fans since 2005, the Supreme Propolis and Royal Mix are the two favourites. We have been more than satisfied for the past six years. We have achieved excellent growth rates and great skin quality (maintaining the right colour). The white (Shiro) has remained clean and intense. I am also satisfied with the little residue left behind when feeding the Koi; this is just as important to me. I also use Kamiac, which gives excellent results after water changes and also helps to increase the biological capacity of the filter. House of Kata is emerging as an innovative company, which is constantly growing and provides a very good customer service.
In 2006 Alan San (Coogan) brought me into contact with House Of Kata Koi Foods. This company makes high quality koi food available to the larger market in Europe, but also in the rest of the world people seem to discover this great brand.
I use your feed for my Koi and I am more than satisfied with the result. They grow well and the skin quality is 100%.
I believe that House Of Kata Royal Mix is the best all-round food there is.
I have used your Koi food for about four seasons now (The Royal Mix and the Super Grower) and I can say that it is the best food I have ever used, resulting in excellent growth and skin quality. The fish are in fantastic condition and as you know we won 23 prizes at the National Show including 10 first prizes. All prizes were in sizes 6, 7 and 8. We also participated in the Essex Koi Show where we won Grand Champion, Mature Champion and several other prizes. I have the best growth figures for several years, some Koi that hardly grew at all in recent years have grown two to three centimetres. Many Koi have grown between six and seven centimetres; these are all large Koi ranging now between 77 and 87 centimetres. The Kigoi that was bought from Sakai’s auction when you were with me 18 months ago (then 35 centimetres), is now 80 centimetres and has won best Kawari Mono size 7.
Since I switched to Royal Mix, I have noticed that fussy eaters eat better and do not leave any leftovers.
I am currently testing The Royal Mix and so far everything looks promising.

I like the feed because it gives my Koi a varied diet without having to buy a selection of feed that has to be mixed. I am very satisfied with the results so far.

For me, House Of Kata Koi food is the best the market has to offer at the moment. It leaves no discolouration and hardly any waste, even with heavy feeding programmes. This means that the feed is very well digested by the Koi. I am more than satisfied with the development of our fish; the growth rate is above average and the colour development is brilliant.
In 2006, I was named “Best Dutch Carp” at the Hilvarenbeek Koi Show. We took home nine first prizes, seven second prizes and a Champion award (Best in all sizes). We could never have achieved this feat without using Super Grower and Royal mix.

Experiences with feeding Royal Mix: After a whole season of testing, my experiences are promising. Highlights: The fish like to eat it, I have seen great growth this season, less waste and improved quality. I was most impressed by the remaining skin quality and shine. High quality fish develop very well on this feed. The price/quality ratio is surprisingly good; this brand can compete with any “much more expensive” brand on the market! We will certainly continue to use these “best buy” products.
