The edible products contain only the best ingredients so that the birds have the perfect supplementary feed – both delicious and nutritious. All products are hand-crafted in South Africa.
Spread a little cheer
Woolies has set a goal to help feed our communities by giving one million meals this Christmas. As little as R10 feeds one person three meals for one day. Woolies customers can give what they can between 2 November and 31 December 2020 to achieve this goal. There are multiple ways to donate (you can swipe, scan, buy a cause-related bag or bracelet, or donate via EFT, credit or debit card), so we really have made it easy to give back and make a big difference.
