Paul Kelly of the British Poultry council explained, ‘If you really want value, buy a whole turkey. You’ll get nicer meat, nicer stock and a better eating experience, and the butcher won’t have to throw all that meat away.’

The report also revealed a price hike in other essentials such as mince pies, electronics and Christmas cards. Up by 25p the average pack of 12 Christmas cards will cost £3, plus the huge increase in postage prices, with 80 first class stamps costing nearly £50.
