Organic Suppliers and Raw

What Is Our Raw, Wholesome, Pure Guarantee Seal

As stated on our package label:

Ingredients: All ingredients are human grade (except where indicated by ***) produced in a sustainable manner without the use of chemical fertilizers, pesticides and other harsh chemicals. ( *Indicates a conventionally grown ingredient; **Indicates ingredient that is "Wild-grown, Wild-harvested/derived from the earth or "Wild-crafted; ***FDA does not recognize ingredient as "human-grade") +All powders are ensured to be free of any and all preservatives.

"Raw, wholesome, pure and unadulterated"† means that our ingredients are those that are produced without the use of chemical fertilizers or pesticides and they are processed without the use of any chemicals including added preservatives, colorings or flavorings or added synthetic vitamins. In addition none of our ingredients contain GMOs.  

Other manufacturers may start out using certified organic ingredients, but once they highly process their foods using high heat which destroys the digestive enzymes, the delicate Omega 3 fatty acids and the crucial oil-soluble vitamins like Vitamin A, D and E as well the ever-so-essential water-soluble Vitamin Bs, they are forced to add synthetic, laboratory-produced chemical versions of these nutrients back in via usually cheap carrier oils like (sometimes hydrogenated) canola or sunflower oils. I have to ask you a very blunt, but realistic question: Can their “certified organic” foods really be considered “organic” after such kinds of processing methods? Personally I don’t consider them to be regardless of the certification label they PAY for. It just means they have the big bucks to fool their customers.

Our foods on the other hand are made with the most wholesome of ingredients that are never, never adulterated by high heat, pressure and extrusion. We don’t add any synthetics of any kind, EVER. The only thing missing from our food is the expensive certified label.

At any rate we are supplying a list of most of the reliable suppliers we buy our ingredients from. The list may grow due to the fact we have to search, search and search to find ingredients we deem worthy enough to use in your bird’s food. I seriously doubt “the other” bird food manufacturers have to do as much resourcing for the ingredients they use in their products considering most of the their food ingredients are grain-based and include synthetic vitamins. We don't mind sharing our list of suppliers with you, heck oftentimes we tell our customers to visit our vendors' sites to purchase items we don't carry! We just aren't that B.I.G. of a company to try to compete with huge corporations; we don't try to. We are here for one reason and one reason only..."the birds."

Feel free to contact each supplier/vendor and ask them if we are one of their customers. I will be contacting each of them to give them permission to give out our business name to you should you decide to contact them. Most of the time though suppliers will not give out such confidential information, so be ready for that. While you are on their website be sure to check out their certifications; many of them have them posted on their website. ALL of the suppliers listed below supply ONLY certified, organic human-grade ingredients. They don't sell B, C and D grades; they sell A grades. Using the ingredients doesn't make our overall product "certified organic," a company has to pay huge sums of money to label their product "certified organic." However all of the ingredients we buy (except meal worms) come from companies who hold organic certifications and sell only A grade ingredients. A pet food company can purchase certified organic ingredients so they can label their packaging as such, but they are not required to purchase A grade; the certified organic grade is allowed to be a B, C or D rating! - Lower ratings of ingredients may contain molds, fungus, bacteria and other pathogens.

Now after reading this list, checking it twice, you tell us, are the ingredients in our foods just as or more wholesome, pure and unadulterated? Do you really think we need to certify foods a FOURTH time when they have already been certified ONCE at the farm that produces them and then SECONDLY again at the packaging plant and then THIRDLY by the suppliers we buy them from? REALLY?  

If you do we will be happy to do that for your peace of mind...but keep this in mind as you make your decision. Certification will cost us thousands of dollars up front. It's going to take away from us formulating and testing other species-specific foods for your feathered companions. Forget about the formulation and laboratory testing of the Cockatoo and Macaw foods this year, — won't happen. And then there are the annual fees, about $2000.00 per year to remain certified. Yep, this isn't just a one-time deal; it's every year.

Now you tell us who is making out like a bandit here...the foods get certified at the farm, the packaging plant, the third-party distributor and then the producer of your bird food! That's 4 certifications folks....FOUR to ensure that your bird's food is actually...well, you know! WOW!
