The British Turkey Awards are calling on all producers to help make its annual event the best ever yet.

A wide range of categories will give manufacturers the opportunity to showcase their responses to retailer demands and consumer needs. This includes a special category for butchers who sell British turkey all year round.

Catriona Lee, of the British Turkey Federation’s marketing committee, said: “We are looking for the best British turkey products around – whether dressed whole birds, convenience portions or added value products.”

A panel of independent judges including Poultry World’s Lucy Knowles, will test the products for taste, quality, innovation, packaging and point of sale support, including quality assurance marks.

Winners of the 14 awards, will be announced by celebrity chef Phil Vickery at a black tie charity dinner at Claridge’s Ballroom, London, on 25 September, with entertainment by comedian Frankie Boyle.
