Today marks the start of Great British Beef Week, which is back for its ninth consecutive year.
The campaign is organised by Ladies in Beef, a group of more than 150 female beef farmers. Their aim is promote everything that’s good about British beef and to encourage the public to support the industry.
Throughout the week, Ladies in Beef will be sharing new internationally themed beef meals using Red Tractor-assured thin cut steaks. Recipes include delicious meals like an authentic madras curry and a pulled beef brisket. Follow Ladies in Beef on Twitter, Facebook and Instagram for more.
Suzy Deeley, corporate development manager, said: “We’re delighted to be supporting Great British Beef Week as the campaign’s charity partner for another year.
“The funds raised during week will go towards helping those in the farming community who are struggling financially.”
Jilly Greed, co-founder of Ladies in Beef, added: “Beef is a nutritionally valuable part of a balanced diet, being naturally rich in protein. It contains haem iron which is easily absorbed and provides eight vitamins and minerals which contribute towards good health and wellbeing.”
