For All Your Chickens & Turkeys this Christmas, Go to Quality Poultry

At dinner tables across the country, turkey is a key part of the holiday meal. In other areas, it would not feel like Christmas without chicken in relleño or escabeche.  Whatever, your family tradition is, don’t wait last minute to get the birds ready.  Over at Quality Products, there are enough turkeys and chickens and all systems are in place to make your shopping easier.  Here is Duane Moody with a report.

It was a busy day over at Quality Poultry Products as consumers are striking off the list of items needed for the Christmas festivities. From small to large turkeys, the company is well prepared to meet the demand this year.

“All our branches, we have people dedicated to turkeys. So if you come in the branches, from Corozal to Dangriga, including the island, we do have extra people that will be there to assist you in getting your turkey products because yes, if you’re like me, we want the biggest turkey. So if you bend yo back, and so forth, there is strain on the back so we do have people to ensure that you are attended to properly and that when you leave, you leave with that excellent customer service as well as the best turkeys in Belize. So every year, the question arises, whether or not we will have enough turkey in country. The answer is yes; there is no doubts about it.  I do want to remind people though, if you are sitting home and you haven’t purchased your turkey as yet and you are thinking, I will wait last minute—because again that is our tradition and our culture to wait last minute. If you are waiting last minute for that smaller turkey, then you will have a problem because we can’t supply only the small size turkeys. We want to ensure that we have a good amount in stock, a good range of sizes in stock.”

 

But for those in the north and south, whose celebration will feature a different take on the Christmas dinner, there is a wide range of chickens, which are on sale throughout the country this week. Belize City Branch Manager Andre Salgado speaks about the great deals.

“For this week, we have a big sale going on in terms of the chicken for the entire week, starting on Monday and will end on Saturday; we are giving the pound of chicken for a dollar and ninety cents and a dollar and ninety-six cents per pound of whole chicken. I mean it is Christmas; you hear about Christmas savings and of course Quality as well wants to give back so this is how we will be giving back to our customers with the huge savings on chickens this week. A lot of people up north and down south, they like soup for Christmas. It is a little unorthodox for Belize City and to Belmopan; however, for the people up there, that’s their tradition. So they would do relleño for Christmas and escabeche and of course, they do tamales. And they prefer either chicken or what we call a stewing hen; that is their to go Christmas dish as oppose to us in Belize City and Belmopan and other districts. We are turkey; we love our turkey. It’s the rice and beans and turkey and ham and stuffings and salad. So again, we are trying to give back to everybody. We are trying to ensure that everybody gets to benefit from Quality Poultry.”

 

Quality says that its prices are very competitive in the market for wholesale and retail for turkeys and chicken. He also says that their products are HASSAP certified; the best and cleanest in Belize. Duane Moody for News Five.
