Organic has always been important to TOP's Parrot Food. From our ingredients to our wholesome lifestyle philosophy, striving to offer your companion parrots the best food possible has been our guiding mission for 15 years. That's why we are excited to announce that our company has earned USDA Organic Certification status. TOP's products are now officially USDA Organic and you will see the USDA logo on our packaging going forward.
What does this mean for you and your birds? It means that you can be 100 percent confident that TOP's Parrot Food organic products offer the best ingredients for your companions. It also means that TOP's is the only parrot food company that can proudly use the USDA Organic mark and that does not use any fillers, like peanuts, corn or soy, or artificial flavors or colors. We feel this puts TOP's in an even higher category when it comes to parrot food and leading the industry in providing truly healthy, all natural pellets, seed mixes and treats.
To become USDA Organic certified, we had to complete a lengthy certification process and audit from our reviewer, the Oregon Department of Agriculture. Being certified organic has a lot to do with the processes we follow when we make our pellets, seeds and treats. The certification goes well beyond just ingredients and we are committed to living up to this high standard every day.
According to the USDA, organic certification symbolizes to consumers that best practices and careful stewardship have been put into a company's products. The certified organic seal guarantees certain safeguards that are verified by a third party, such as using non GMO ingredients. That's our promise to you and now that we are officially USDA Organic certified it's the guiding mission we will follow to maintain our organic status.
It's been a long journey to become USDA Organic and one that improved our entire organization. We are excited that our future now includes an official declaration that we are an organic company with organic products. Very few brands in the parrot food market can say that.
Finally, we want to thank you, our customers, for helping us reach this milestone and supporting our efforts. We did this because we know USDA Organic is important to you.
