Turkey trend: Turkey Mince tops fresh year-round, festive season favours Turkey roasts

While chicken continues to be the number one meat in Australia, the number of Turkey product options are growing – and this super-food protein is continuing to be a growing choice year-round.

Ingham’s has revealed its four 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 available throughout the year.

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 breast contains less than two per cent fat, is high in protein and rich in vitamins and minerals – including vitamin B12, zinc, iron, and selenium – and the continuing movement towards health-conscious choices is anticipated to continue to see Turkey take a more regular place on Aussie tables.

To highlight its Turkey range, Ingham’s has released dedicated Turkey recipes by celebrity chef Manu Feildel as part of its Dinner Done campaign, including Saltimbocca Turkey Steaks in Diane Sauce (cooking with fresh Turkey breast steak), and Turkey Koftas (cooking with fresh Turkey mince).

“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,” said Mark Powell – Chief Customer Officer at Ingham’s.

: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.”

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.” To view Manu’s Turkey recipes, and learn more about Ingham’s Dinner Done, visit
