Foster Farms is offering organic turkey products.
LIVINGSTON, Calif. – Foster Farms Organic Ground Turkey is now available at retailers and Costco locations in California and the Pacific Northwest. The new product follows the company’s launch of organic fresh chicken.
The USDA-certified organic ground turkey is sold in 1-lb. packages. The birds are free-range, raised without antibiotics and fed an organic vegetarian diet, the company said in a news release. Consumers also can expect whole organic turkeys in time for Thanksgiving.
“Foster Farms is committed to producing premium turkey products that provide consumers a variety of high-quality, lean protein options,” said TJ Johnson, director of marketing for Foster Farms turkey. “We are seeing more consumers using ground turkey as a substitute in recipes to make them leaner and lighter. In line with this trend, the next logical step for Foster Farms was to add an organic option.”
