Organic=Free Range + £10

"Shoppers were warned yesterday that there could be a shortage of organic turkeys at supermarkets this Christmas. In the past year, the organic turkey market has increased by almost 50 per cent as shoppers spend more for top-quality, traceable produce. Last Christmas alone organic turkey sales doubled. Waitrose said yesterday that it could not risk lowering its standards by switching to other suppliers for its organic turkeys. It was therefore cancelling its 1,300 advance orders. Instead, customers who placed orders will be offered a free-range bird and a £10 gift voucher."

Never thought about it before, but can one buy Halal Christmas turkeys? Talk about niche...
