Yes We CAN

Turkey burgers in an aluminum can. The aluminum is infinitely recyclable. All one has to do is rinse it (or not bother) and recycle it with other curbside recyclables.

If you are unsure whether customers will go for the higher expense of a canned turkey burger, just position this as a semi-premium, Earth friendly product.

GROUND TURKEY- NEW IDEAS

Bacteria-Free Ground Turkey

Ground turkey is known to be more contaminated than most meats. Many people avoid buying it and eating it because they have bad personal (e.g., GI) experience. These bacteria can be easily eliminated with radiation exposure. The turkey industry should sterilize ground turkey and advertise the sterile version as "bacteria-free." This version would be much more popular.

Made with the best parts

The problem with ground products is that it's hard to tell what parts of the animal are in them...and I really don't want to eat turkey testicles. For example. If there was a product that said exactly what parts were, and weren't, in the ground turkey, i'd be more likely to purchase and eat that product.

Sell pre-made meatball mix

When my family makes turkey meatballs, we have to measure everything out by hand: The breadcrumbs, the grated cheese, and finally the turkey meat. Then we have to mix it all by hand. It would simplify things if it came pre-mixed with the meatball mixture, so that we wouldn't have to take the time to mix them, and could just form meatballs.

Make Ground Turkey More Appealing & Also Great to Cook With

We buy a lot of ground turkey at my house, so I have some strong opinions about it:
1: Appearance: Why is it that ground turkey always looks so disgusting? I mean, it really never looks appealing to me. I think it has to do with color or maybe consistency. I like ground turkey that has a little pink to it and also doesn't look too slimy. I think actually having most of the turkey covered by a graphic so that there is... more »

If your turkeys aren't miserable, show them to us

I hate how chicken farms have chickens crowded together, their beaks clipped...if your turkeys aren't miserable, show us! I'd feel better about buying turkey if it wasn't too much more expensive, but I knew that the turkeys didn't have bad lives prior to being slaughtered. It would also make me more confident about their health.

Add Spice

My mother adds Italian Spice to EVERYTHING. I, on the other hand, hardly ever spice things, because I'm scared I'll add too much. Make both me and my mother happy: Add spices, maybe Italian Spice, maybe your own mixture, to ground turkey or turkey burgers, for those of us who aren't confident about adding it ourselves.

variable size patties

Create the patties for me but in variable sizes. There are days when a large size doesn't work and there are days when entertaining, one size does not fit all. While I could cut the pieces myself, I'd rather not handle raw meat due to contamination issues, which leads me to want custom-made portions pre-packed just for my needs.

Master Meal-Prep!

By hermetically sealing large ground turkey packages with seams that allow the consumer to opt for smaller servings, meal preppers can use only what they need when they need it.

As a health-conscious person, I do not like to thaw large meat portions when I only want a smaller portion because histamines climb in unfrozen meat and will trigger my hive allergy.

Having a large container of pre-segregated sections makes... more »

More assurance about what's being packaged and how

Customers need reason to believe that their ground turkey is being ground and packed from the right stuff, and not from - say - "pink slime". Cameras that capture the process of manufacturing and packing, and relay their video feed to an internet-accessible site for each production facility. This gives the customer confidence in the product, compliance with necessary safeguards, hygiene, animal practices, etc.
