Since its foundation in 1955 by Rolf C. Hagen, the company still dedicates a lot of resources into creating practical and innovative products that enhance the health and welfare of pets. Sharing a common bond of love and compassion for animals, Hagen`s philosophy is based on the fact that pets are not only the heart of their business, but are the reason they are in business.
Products such as Living World Premium, Tropimix and Tropican have for over 20 years provided pet birds with gourmet seed blends and well balanced complete diets, to ensure all the vital nutrients required for their health and well-being.
The Hagen Avicultural Research Institute (HARI) was established in 1985, and has fed more than 350 pairs of some 58 different Parrot species under the direction of Psittacine Aviculturist Mark Hagen.
One of the major areas of research carried out at HARI is concerned with nutrition. All Hagen feeds for pet birds and Parrots are HARI approved. Extensive trials revealed Tropican has greater nutrient density and digestibility than other diets on the market, which results in better plumage, weight balance, lower consumption, greater metabolic water production and therefore lower water intake, lower urination, pleasant smelling faeces and excellent palatability.
You can be sure Hagen diets are backed by the highest levels of research and development.
