We all know it will still taste great. But we are paying way more than we need to.
According to a recent article by Thomas Barrabi in the New York Post, Americans will face a record-high cost for a traditional Thanksgiving turkey this fall because of inflation and a shortage caused by bird flu outbreaks.
The cost of turkey hens — the bird that most often appears on Thanksgiving dinner tables — is currently up 57% compared to its five-year average, according to market data from research firm Urner Barry cited by the Wall Street Journal.
Prices have hit their highest level on record. Turkey breast meat has surged to a record of more than $6.50 per pound this year. The same cut cost less than $2 per pound in 2020.
This is another example of prices that do not need to be as high as they are. There are ways to mitigate these costs, but you should have been considering that in February and March. And you should have been engaging SafeSourcing Inc.
