Hagen was started in 1955 by Rolf C Hagen. Since then they have been committed to creating products that improve the health and welfare of pets.
The UK office of Hagen was launched in 1982 and the Hagen Avicultural Research Institute (HARI) three years later in 1985. The Institute has cared for dozens of Parrot species in that time under the supervision of Psittacine Aviculturist Mark Hagen.

approved by HARI.
