Länsi-Kalkkuna is jointly owned by meat product producers Atria Finland Ltd and HKScan Finland Ltd. Länsi-Kalkkuna’s mission is to produce Finnish turkey meat for its owners.
Länsi-Kalkkuna is responsible for the whole production chain of turkey meat in Finland: parent stock poults and egg layers, hatchery, rearing facilities, slaughterhouse and cutting plant.
From the cutting plant, the prepared meat is transported to Atria and HKScan, who then process and market the meat both as fresh meat products and cold cuts.
Most of Länsi-Kalkkuna subcontractor farms are in the regions of Satakunta, Southwest Finland, Southern Ostrobothnia and Ostrobothnia. A few are in the Southern Savonia.
Länsi-Kalkkuna’s turkey hatchery is located in Jalasjärvi in Southern Ostrobothnia. Länsi-Kalkkuna’s slaughterhouse and cutting plant are in the Satakunta region, in Säkylä.
The majority of Finnish turkeys (99 %) are raised as poultry contract farming for Länsi-Kalkkuna. This means the subcontractor works with the hatchery and slaughterhouse throughout the growing period of the birds and in all matters related to them.
Turkey meat produced by Länsi-Kalkkuna is marketed to consumers under the owners’ brands, i.e. Atria, HK and Kariniemen. Finnish Turkey meat can easily be found by looking for the “Hyvää Suomesta” label printed on the packaging, or by looking for products from the abovementioned brands.
