Licensed in 2007
Licensed for our retail product range – our turkey cooked meats, our frozen whole turkeys and joints plus our fresh turkey portions and joints all carry the Red Tractor logo.
The Red Tractor logo also appears on all products in our Golden Norfolk Turkey and Big Green Tick foodservice ranges.
Why did you decide to become licenced?
At Bernard Matthews Farms, we are proud to rear 100% British turkey, on our own farms across Norfolk, Suffolk and Lincolnshire. We own the whole supply chain – from the breeding stock and hatching the turkey eggs to producing the highest quality, tastiest turkey products – offering complete traceability from ‘farm to fork’.
Our farms, feed mill, production sites and our hatchery are all Red Tractor certified.
Using the Red Tractor logo on our packs allows us to clearly demonstrate to consumers they are buying British turkey that meets high standards of food safety, traceability and bird welfare, backed up by a fully audited and accredited farm and factory assurance scheme.
What are you doing for Red Tractor Week?
We are supporting Red Tractor Week by promoting the availability of free teaching resources for schools and the catering promotional materials, on our Foodservice website (http://www.bernardmatthews.com/) to our profit and cost sector catering customers.
