Bernard Matthews Foodservice has created three new ‘fully traceable’ British turkey products for hospitality businesses and caterers to provide low-fat options for kids. 

Product details:

The new products fall under Bernard Matthews’ newly-created ‘Big Green Tick’ range and include Turkey Sausages, Fry Free Turkey Burgers and Turkey Meatballs.

  • Big Green Tick Turkey Sausages contain less than 5 per cent of a child’s GDA for fat and saturated fat based on a standard 51g cooked portion. They offer family-friendly businesses a healthier addition to dishes such as toad in the hole and bangers and mash.
  • Big Green Tick Fry Free Turkey Burgers contain less than per 4 per cent of a child’s GDA for fat, while Big Green Tick Turkey Meatballs contain less than 5 per cent.

USP:

Each of the new products is fully traceable, containing 75 per cent turkey. Each turkey is reared on the company’s own farms across Norfolk, Suffolk and Lincolnshire and as a fully integrated supply chain business every product can be tracked from farm to fork.

The turkeys are fed on a cereal-based diet the majority being locally sourced wheat prepared at the company’s own feed mill ensuring some of the lowest food miles in the food industry.

Availability:

Big Green Tick Turkey Sausages come in bags of 20 sausages (two bags per case). Big Green Tick Fry Free Turkey Burgers come in bags of 12 burgers, with four bags per case (48 burgers), and a case of Fry Free Turkey Meatballs contains 3 x 1kg bags.

Each product is IQF packed for portion control. They are available now from a variety of major wholesalers.

Cost:

At the discretion of the wholesaler.

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.”
