Great British Beef Week is here! This year’s campaign starts today and runs to April 30 and is all about promoting the best of British beef. This year there is a focus on the benefits of eating thin cut steaks.
Throughout the week, we’ll be sharing tasty recipes for you to try at home and some interesting facts about beef on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram. You can also follow Ladies in Beef, the campaign organisers, for some more great stuff about British beef.
How can you support beef week?
You can support GBBW by attending one of our events. As the charity partner for GBBW, we’re celebrating British beef by hosting a number of events across the nation, from a quiz night in South Yorkshire to a beef supper in Dorset. You can find a full list of our GBBW events here.
Or you can get involved at home by buying assured British beef, which you can find by looking for the Red Tractor Logo. Red Tractor provides a guarantee of assurance of quality and traceability – from farm to pack. Check our social media or follow Ladies in Beef for some tasty recipes.
Don’t forget to share your beef meals on social media using #GBBW. You can also download digital resources to share online from www.ladiesinbeef.org.uk/gbbw
Why support British beef?
Great British Beef Week highlights nutritious value of beef and the vital role livestock production plays in the management of the countryside.
Minette, NFU president, co-founder of Ladies in Beef, and R.A.B.I supporter, said: “There has never been a more important time for us as farmers to be actively engaged and reaching out to our consumers.”
You can hear a special message from Minette about the importance of British beef in the video below.
