Westland launch higher energy wild bird food balls

The new Peckish range is set to be launched in May and in stores from August.

New products include Peckish Complete Suet Bites and Peckish Daily Goodness Peanut Boost, an extra high protein kibbled peanut blend.

A feeder offering, includes Peckish ready-filled Easy Feeders.

Ther is new and improved merchandising.

Headlining the range are new Peckish Complete Energy Balls. They have 28 per cent more energy and fat than rivals, say Westland, and contain no waste materials and fillers.

Peckish Complete Energy Balls are sold as a launch promotion, a free energy ball feeder.

The products have been produced at the new Westland suet facility in Driffield.

Westland nutritional technologist Lorron Bright said: "This unique blend of seeds give a unique texture proven through field trials to attract a greater variety of birds, including smaller, more colourful species such as blue tits and songbirds.

"Also, our Peckish Complete Energy Balls are the only energy balls to be enriched with the extra energy of a 12 seed blend, plus Calvita, a supplement unique to Peckish, which enhances plumage colour and promotes healthier brighter birds."

Westland marketing manager Wendy French said: "The Peckish brand has a fun and vibrant personality, making it ideal to entice more people into feeding the birds.

"This brand new look and product offering will really stand out on shelf, making it even easier for customers to spot Peckish products and more importantly, put them in their basket."
