A specialist poultry and game firm has launched a new turkey burger aimed at health-conscious barbecue fans.

Woodbridge-based Gressingham Foods – which also has a major plant in Redgrave – unveiled its latest product in Waitrose as a “tasty and healthy low fat alternative for the barbecue season”.

At under 5% fat, it believes the new burgers will go down well with consumers aiming to cut their red meat consumption, while also providing something new and different to rustle up on the barbecue.

“With many people looking for naturally low fat foods, turkey is a perfect choice. It is full of flavour, but low in fat and calories, making it a guilt-free choice for the barbecue season.”
