Meet the Company That's Turning the Beef-or-Bird Frenzy on its Beak


Across the U.S., meat consumption is at an all-time high. In 2018, the average American will eat just over 222 pounds of red meat and poultry, getting double the daily recommended dose. Interest in protein-rich diets, like keto and paleo, are driving the record-breaking demand for meat at all meals. 

While consumers are crazy about meat, there's a lack of options. It's either beef or chicken on the dinner table, night after night after night. And while these meats are delicious, who wants to eat the same thing every night? Perhaps as much as Americans crave meat, they crave something else: The freedom to choose! 

There's a new player in town rising up to meet the challenge of beef vs. bird with a better protein—and not one that's derived in a lab or plant-based, but America's first homegrown fowl. 

The Great American Turkey Company is bringing turkey back to the table, and not just for one special day in November. 

Turkey is similar to chicken that it can easily be used in your family's favorite recipes, yet it packs a flavor differential and a healthy wallop. Turkey is super high in protein and naturally gluten free. Rounding out all the talk about turkey is the nutritious nature of the bird: Turkey delivers omega-3, B-6, B-12, selenium, zinc, and niacin. With a glycemic index of zero, turkey leaves you feeling satisfied after meals without a corresponding blood sugar crash.

 Turkey tastes like a richer, meatier bird, which means more flavor from something that's as versatile as that other staple bird.

The Great American Turkey Company uses only humanely raised meat that comes from family farms located right here, in America. There's nothing that's bad for you, just naturally raised, vegetarian fed meat that's never given hormones or antibiotics or gluten. If you're looking for something healthy to feed your family, you'll love having another option. From the breakfast table to the dinner table, give turkey a slot in your weekly lineup to get the flavors your family craves in a formula that's better for you. 

The Great American Turkey Company has a variety of products suited for American tastes and prepackaged, so the work's done for you—something that's become popular with the advent of meal kits packaged just right for a nightly supper. Vacuum sealed packs extend the shelf life while locking in the flavor and texture of the meat for maximum freshness.


All you do is open up the package of pan-ready portions, cook until done, and serve with sides for an insta-meal. 

Seasoned turkey breast strips and cutlets come in chef driven marinades that explode with flavor. Dinner could not be easier when you're sauteing turkey strips with fresh vegetables for a smoky, sweet chili stir fry or serving up fresh tomato and basil turkey cutlets with pasta primavera. You'll also find an olive oil and herb marinade and spicy masala. 

When it's time to grill, reach for turkey sausages or turkey dogs as an alternative to brats or franks. Turkey hot dogs skip all the spooky byproducts and deliver a healthy dose of pure meat packed with the flavor your kids crave. Turkey sausages pack a spicy kick in foodie flavors that will impress your cookout crew. Think smoky sweet chili, beer and cheddar, spicy masala, or smoked mozzarella and broccoli rabe.

For the breakfast table, classic turkey links in smoky maple apple or classic sage offer the traditional breakfast flavors you crave in a format that's healthy and family friendly.


You know exactly what you're feeding your family and enjoy eating meat that's fresh, flavorful, and full of natural, good-for-you ingredients.
