From the moment Haith’s was founded in 1937, to the development of our new factory and production plant, Haith’s has delivered its commitment to provide quality, cleanliness, service and value to many of the UK’s most notable bird-keeping professionals – zoos, veterinary hospitals, wildlife parks, charities, councils and universities. We’ve also supplied many of the UK’s most successful bird-keepers and bird-breeders and exported our SUPERCLEAN™bird foods across the globe. The Bird Food Centre (Lincolnshire) is where we research and develop the UK’s most comprehensive range of bird diets. Our purpose-built factory has created quality research space, and allowed us to modernise our machinery so that we now have a market-leading hygienic bird food plant. From this bird food plant we offer a new service specifically positioned at bird-keeping professionals, which we call Haith’s PRO. Of course, there’s nothing new about our diets – they’ve been tested by time. Our aim is to help make professional bird-keeping and bird feeding safer and that’s why, at the heart of Haith’s, there’s a commitment to Quality Control and – more specifically – a bird food testing regime introduced by Professor John E Cooper DTVM FRCPath FSB CIBiol FRCVS.
