Why you should buy them:
Duncan Marsh, general manager for Bernard Matthews Foodservice, said: “These new products offer profit sector caterers complete confidence in targeting the family market.
“After all, 29 per cent of parents choose dishes that are low in salt and fat for their kids when eating out, while research also reveals they are concerned with nutritional value.
“Breakfast, in particular, is growing within the eating-out market and our new Turkey Sausages offer a tasty lower in fat alternative to pork sausages in breakfast baps and wraps, as well as kids’ favourites such as sausage bakes.”
