UK turkey producer predicts holiday shortage
Light orders by farms, stores may mean holiday turkey shortage
A combination of light store orders early in the year and reduced placing of turkey poults on farms this summer could lead to a shortage of traditional Christmas turkeys, according to UK producerPaul Kelly.
Producers made decisions on the size of their poult orders early in the year when the recession was at its gloomiest, and many cut back on their placements.
The company further reports that turkey prices have remained static.
