Gressingham ducks:

The Gressingham duck is a cross between the Wild Mallard and Pekin breeds of duck. They have succulent flavoursome meat— more so than other breeds. A Gressingham duck has approximately 20% more breast meat than other breeds of duck of the same weight.

The ducks are reared on numerous farms all in East Anglia. Mostly they’re barn reared. They have natural light and ventilation, and fresh straw bedding daily. Gressingham Foods, the suppliers of Gressingham ducks, work with RSPCA to ensure good living standards for the ducks.

The duck’s feed contains no growth enhancers or antibiotics.
