Copdock Mill are using Glee as an opportunity to engage with retailers by asking them to vote for the name of their new bird seed mix, which includes aniseed.
Visitors to the stand can vote for their preferred name from the following options:- Attract More Birds, Birds that Brunch, Enchanted Delight, Wild Attraction and Twitter Party with the winning name being announced on Thursday.
A family-owned business, Copdock Mill, have been producing wild bird food for 45 years. As well as the usual favourite mixes to attract specific birds they have recently added new varieties including Caramel Crumble (for those birds with a sweeter beak) and Winter Berry Feast (which includes rowan berries).
These developments, along with the yet to be named mix, aim to appeal to a new audience of customers that may have started feeding the birds through lockdown and taking more interest in the wildlife around them.
The Copdock Mill team have joined up with Songbird Survival – a national charity that funds research into song bird decline and provides advice and solutions on how to reverse this worrying trend. Over the last 50 years there has been a reduction of 50% of song birds in the UK.
Copdock Mill have provided the charity with £25,000 over the course of their initial two year partnership – helping to fund important research and raise awareness through adding information to the product packaging.
