Bucktons launch new bulk suet range

by | Dec 15, 2016 | News, Products | 0 comments

Bucktons are helping to drive value for consumers by launching 12.55kg bags of its popular Bucktons Wild Bird Suet Pellets.

Following the successful launch earlier this year of Bucktons Wild Bird Suet Pellets in 3kg tubs, the larger pack size is now being introduced to help keep wild birds healthy during the cold winter months.

The following products will now join Bucktons High Energy Wild Bird Suet Pellets by being available in both a 3kg and 12.55kg size:

  • Bucktons Fruit & Berry Wild Bird Suet Pellets ? A delicious fruity aroma that birds won?t be able to resist. This high fat content pellet is great for keeping energy levels up during the cold winter months and is also ideal for breeding season.
  • Bucktons Peanut & Mealworm Wild Bird Suet Pellets ? Rich in protein as it contains both peanuts and mealworms. This mix will keep birds fuller for longer during the cold winter nights.

The arrival of the new sized bags are perfectly timed, as the Met Office has this week issued a warning that temperatures are set to plummet1. Wild birds are especially vulnerable to cold weather and can lose as much as 10% of their body weight in just a few days.

They are exciting new additions to the wider Bucktons suet range, which also includes 150 box of Energy Balls, Energy Suet Pellets (3kg & 12.55kg) and the Suet Variety Pack.

Kirk Rothwell, brand manager for Bucktons, said: ?Our Bucktons Wild Bird Suet Pellets are popular products for us, particularly during the winter months. The Fruit & Berry suet pellets, with their delicious fruity aroma and the Peanut & Mealworm suet pellets that are rich in protein, are certainly a firm favourite with garden birds. We?ve launched this new pack size to appeal to consumers looking for a great deal on a high quality product.

?The bird food market in the UK is worth ?258m a year2. This new offering is perfectly poised to take advantage of the forthcoming colder weather. Make sure you don?t miss out!?
