A non-synthetic, certified organic, sustainable whole food daily dietary supplement that provides natural vitamins and precursors for everyday wellness in birds and other animals.
ORGANIC & SUSTAINABLE
Grown on small organic family farms in Ecuador, this Red Palm is certified Organic, Non-GMO and Fair Trade. No deforestation or habitat destruction results from the growing or harvesting process.
This unrefined red palm oil has a mild carrot-like flavor, with a rich, buttery texture. Some red palm oils have a strong or harsh flavor, however, our proprietary cold-filtration process removes any strong flavor while retaining the nutrients.
Committed to the sustainable production of organic and fairly traded products, they also contribute to social development in the community through education and nutrition programs. They allocate 1% of sales to social and environmental stewardship programs. Projects have included building a small health clinic and providing sports uniforms for the local youth.
The region in Ecuador where this Organic Red Palm Oil is grown has numerous small family farms, averaging 10 hectares (about 25 acres), interspersed throughout the regional forests. These subsistence farms were planted many years ago and are now being worked by second and third generation farming families.

I was so glad to see that Harrisons was continuing to offer this product, as I believe it is necessary for optimal nutrition for birds. I like this product better than the previous palm oil Harrisons sold, as the previous product came in a small jar, and it was very hard to get the product out of the jar.
