A Unique Formulation to Maintain a Healthy Lifestyle
Lifetime Formula, a Parrot food with lower protein and calcium was developed for companion birds who are not molting or under any other stress such as cooler temperatures. Natural colours such as those found in carrots and alfalfa add interest for the bird without being artificial.
It’s an excellent peanut-derived source of fat and protein, as well as a source of essential grains that complement amino acid profiles; all critical for the maintenance of a healthy lifestyle for fledged juvenile to adult Parrots. A rich source of Omega fatty acids from flaxseed, peanuts and sunflower seeds makes feathers shine and helps support a healthy body.
Parrots have significantly more taste buds than chickens, so why do many diets look and taste like chicken feed? Unlike farm pellets these granules break cleanly and do not explode into fine powder like pellets do. The parrot is able to hold the rest of the morsel and eat the piece it broke off. Again this difference results in a benefit to the consumer as significantly less wastage is associated with Tropican bird food.
Some bird owners find it hard to feed their bird uniform, formulated diets. Tropican’s generous levels of important nutrients allows it to be diluted (up to 20 percent on a weight basis) by the addition of fruits and vegetables. Tropican morsels are hard and dense contributing to a healthier beak, which is essential to your bird’s overall health. Tropican Lifetime Granules or Lifetime Food Sticks ensure that fussy eaters get a full balanced diet. Since Tropican incorporates vitamins and minerals, a vitamin supplement is not needed.
Proudly Canadian Made
We are very proud of Tropican’s outstanding 30+ year tradition of raising thousands of parrots over several generations at HARI. At a time when most bird food companies have shut their research centers, HARI continues its ongoing work on the research and development of advanced bird nutrition. In fact, HARI is the longest-standing research facility dedicated to studying the care and breeding of parrots.
Tropican uses only the freshest grains and legumes from the most recent crops.
Ingredients are sourced locally, which means consumers get fresher food faster. In addition, the fact that it’s now made in close geographical proximity to HARI, located in Rigaud, means quicker turnaround times for final HARI quality assurance approvals and enhanced freshness-to-market efficiencies.
Tropican Hand-Feeding Formula is made at Hagen Industries in Montreal, Quebec and undergoes rigorous 3-stage testing, which is unprecedented among bird food makers. Two onsite tests at Hagen Industries and final batch testing at HARI ensures that consumers get safe, dependable and top quality bird food for their treasured feathered companions.

Fruity Scent and Pellet Colour?
The fruity aroma is derived from natural fruit oils (banana and orange oil) and is sprayed on to the morsels, along with herbal antioxidants and tocopherals (Vitamin E) right before packaging. Unlike artificial flavors, the natural fruity aroma will dissipate in a reasonable amount of time after opening.
Tropican Lifetime is naturally yellow due to its mixed grain composition; the inclusion of the orange and green pellet varieties are due to the addition of natural vegetable sources – tomato (orange pellets) and alfalfa nutrient concentrate (green pellets).
At a cost savings for large flocks, the largest breeder bulk format – 80535 in 4 mm pellet is available without the inclusion of the pellet “colour” varieties and fruity aroma.
