Quality Control

Over 50% of our bird food ingredients are sourced from UK Farms, with a majority grown locally. The Farms we purchase from are all members of the Red Tractor Assurance Scheme, the UKs largest food assurance scheme and we pride ourselves on the cleanliness and quality of our products. We are Universal Feed Assurance Scheme (UFAS) accredited company meaning we can only accept products from approved suppliers and hauliers. With products coming from all over the world we must be vigilant. Anything coming into our warehouse in bulk from farm is always sampled and inspected for quality on intake, if it isn’t right we don’t accept it. Our Bulk raw materials are cleaned twice, once during the manufacturing process and again in the bagging and blending process. We are also constantly updating our plant equipment, so you can rest assured that whether you are feeding pigeon, cage and aviary birds or wild birds, they are always getting the best.

Environmental Promise

We use paper bags on our Colonels, Avian Specific, Gem Pigeon Corn and some of our straights. We produce a natural product, so why not put it into a bag made from a natural product Our Bags are sourced from well managed and sustainable forests; where growth and forest regeneration is exceeding cutting, this is enforced by the Swedish Forestry Act to ensure continued access to wood and long term production. Due to the close proximity of forests/timber sources to the paper mills, there are reduced transportation costs and emissions in comparison to collection, transportation and recovery of other packaging materials and plastics. The paper mills have a low dependence on fossil fuels and the waste from the debarking process is used to generate their own power stations, Water used is obtained from surface water sources, not ground water as used by many recycling centres.
