While chicken continues to be the number one meat in Australia, the number of Turkey product options are growing – making this super-food an easier option for home-cooks year-round.
Ingham’s, Australia’s largest integrated poultry producer, has revealed its five top-selling fresh Turkey products year-round are: Turkey Mince, Turkey Breast Mince, Turkey Minute Steaks and Turkey Breast Steaks. Turkey freezes well too, and Ingham’s frozen Turkey roasts are particularly popular.
And with Turkey breast containing less than two per cent fat, as well as being high in protein and rich in vitamins and minerals – including vitamin B12, zinc, iron, and selenium – the availability of increased product options is expected to see Turkey take a more regular place on our tables.
Currently, the lead up to the festive season (November and December) accounts for a significant portion of Turkey sales – accounting for one-quarter of fresh Turkey sales, and three-quarters of frozen roast-Turkey sales – but this lean-poultry is a growing choice year-round.
“Turkey is a versatile, low-fat protein that is high in a range of nutrients and can be used in many dishes. We know that shoppers are looking for easy, quick, healthy options that the whole family will eat, but they also want greater choice and new dinner options. This is why we’ve expanded our Turkey range, and its why we’ve partnered with celebrity chef Manu Feildel to create a range of simple ad delicious Dinner Done recipes – featuring Turkey as well as Chicken,” said Mark Powell – Chief Customer Officer at Ingham’s.
Revealing the Ingham’s Dinner Done Turkey recipes, Manu Feildel said: “Turkey is a fabulous protein, that sometimes flies under the radar. It’s flavourful, easy to cook and an incredibly healthy choice.”
Ingham’s has twenty Turkey farms, which are located in New South Wales based from the Macarthur region in South-West Sydney to the Southern Highlands. All farms are family owned and operated.
