Default Goldenfeast's President Sent Me a Reply!

Ed Schmitt, Goldenfeast's president, actually wrote a reply to me! How cool is that!? I had sent them an email asking about the discrepancy between the list of ingredients for the Goldn'obles on their site and on the sample pack I received.

Anyways, they have very good customer service and replied in around a day. So, I thanked them and complimented them on how legit their pellets are. I mean, all the nutrients in those suckers come from the ingredients themselves, not synthetic vitamins! Anyways, I also suggested perhaps including dandelion root in their pellets, and the employee I was emailing passed my email onto the president! Want to see what he wrote!?!? Of course you do !


Hi Robyn,

Thanks for taking the time to email us about Goldn'obles and Dandelion root.

Goldenfeast is always striving to improve its product line. Most recently we have decided to eliminate roasted corn from our formulas. This ingredient change will take a little time as we will need to change the ingredient listing on our labels. We are making this change because very few exotic birds will eat it and even then very little.

Many consumers such as yourself, are recognizing the differences in the extruded foods produced. As you have observed, Goldn'obles contains no field corn or peanuts and Quinoa, the most complete vegetable protein known, is listed on our label as the 1st ingredient.

Too often extruded foods add cheap ingredients and, as they say in marketing and sales, the manufacturers "puff the wares" by adding synthetic vitamins, another product I am very much against adding to my formulas. The misuse of synthetic vitamins as we have heard with product recalls can have serious consequences.

When placing your order for Goldenfeast, you can have your choice of a barrier bag with our compliments.

Sincere Regards,

Ed Schmitt
President



Guys, how impressive is that!? He could've just had an employee send some automatic copy and pasted message to me about how, "Your suggestions are very important to us. We will have a company representative review your message. Do not reply to this email." BUT THEY DIDN'T!

What a sad life I live where I get totally psyched from receiving a reply from a company's president .

That's great, Robyn! I know, in this age of robotic replies it's lovely to know someone took the time to type that out for you

Okay, so I did a bit of research and it sounds like he's saying I can have any bag of food, assuming it does not come in one of those plastic containers. So...more of a small/medium amount of food rather than a 4lbs container that I'd normally go for. Sweet!

Pretty cool. It is always good to know that the people at the top are trying to do what's best...

Oh my, I just looked that up, it is an 11 pound bag of birdy food goodness.

Robyn, you just hit the jackpot, and thank to your post I am now looking at food to buy from them

Wow! If he meant an 11lbs bag, that's just amazing! It's just so nice to know there's a company out there giving it their all! A lot of companies just want your money and don't care if their products are making you or your animals sick, but Goldenfeast just seems so genuine!

Barry, I'd suggest trying their Australian Blend and their Goldn'obles III. Your budgies might need a little time to get used to the Australian Blend since it contains a variety of nuts, herbs, and spices that they might not be familiar with, but my budgies definitely find it palatable. Their pellets (the Goldn'obles) are quite delicious! The pellets are sweetened with agave, I believe, to make them more attractive, and have a bunch of fruits, veggies, spices, and wholesome grains like quinoa and brown rice. Not to mention many of the ingredients are organic and human-grade. No artificial vitamins, minerals, colours, or flavours. My budgies actually started nibbling on the pellets after less than 48 hours! As far as I know, none of them had ever eaten pellets before! I tasted the pellets, and they're actually yummy.

Darn it! They've sucked me in with free food ! They know my weakness! Careful though, Barry. They'll try to suck you in, too, with free sample packets of food included in your order. It's even worse when it turns out your birds liked the sample!

I am actually looking at those foods now heheh

Where do you buy from? Direct or a website in Canada?

They can suck me in no problem, if I can have the best food for my fids I will be a happy guy I really hope you have a place in Canada you buy from as shipping from the US to here usually hurts bad

Hmmm free samples, I know Echo will try anything lol, Buddy and Merlin will not touch anything but seeds, millet and my sneaky human dehydrated fruits and veggies that they think is a new kind of treat.

Echo on the other hand will go for anything I put in his cage, parsley, basil, veggies like broccoli, cauliflower, you name it lol. I hope if they seem him eating it they will as well

Robyn.. I am impressed with the letter and got psyched too!! (we really aren't having THAT sad of a life, are we? LOL!!!).. Great news to you about potentially free food as well.
Let us know how your little ones like and how they do with the Goldenfeast, ok?
