Danbury: Kelly Turkeys wins award for ‘Keen welfare and sustainability policy’

DANBURY-based Kelly Turkeys has scooped an accolade for its health and welfare standards.

The Essex premium turkey producer won the award at the 2012 Pig & Poultry Marketing Awards presented at the London Haymarket Hotel.

Leading suppliers to the premium traditional Christmas market, Kelly Turkeys were highly commended as runners-up for the Health & Welfare Award.

The judges were very impressed with the Kelly Turkeys’ approach.

“The staggering success of the brand is not only a testament to the management and marketing of the organisation, but the fact that it is driven by such a keen welfare and sustainability policy which underpins the whole saleability and excellent image portrayed by the business,” they said.

The presentation was made by Andy Black, managing director of Springetts Brand Design Consultants, in the company of Farming Minister James Paice.
