Terrific win for Ted Turkey's website

UK - Ted Turkey is celebrating a cracking success after this year’s website to promote buying British birds for Christmas clocked up more than 100,000 hits in just two months.

The popular, downloadable gobble, gobble ringtone helped boost numbers to the UK Turkeys website, as did the competition to win a family stay on a farm – which generated more than 5,500 entries.

And with more than 140 turkey producers listed on the site the NFU is supporting UK farmers by ensuring it has never been easier for the consumer to buy a British bird this Christmas.

NFU poultry board vice chairman Mike Bailey said: “This year has been a phenomenal success with a record number of hits for the Ted Turkey website and many extra orders generated as a result.

“A lot of farmers are telling me they’ve sold out and demand has been very high. People are still ringing up now but it’s now too late to place an order – if people want to make sure they get a quality bird they need to be ordering it in November or early December to avoid disappointment.

“Behind all the fun and games on the website is a serious message – buying a local bird for Christmas ensures taste, quality and assurance is at a premium. It makes sense to support your local producer – it is the best way to reduce food miles and look after the environment.”
