Great British Beef Week

Great British Beef Week

Get ready for the Great British Beef Week!  This annual event usually takes place around the 23rd of April – which just also happens to be St George’s Day.

What could be more British and a Sunday joint of roast beef with all the trimmings?  It could be argued that the humble sandwich is just as quintessentially British, and on a Monday morning if you were to tuck tasty morsels of beef left over from the Sunday Roast, between two slabs of crusty bread, that would be a reasonable contender for the title!

The key focus of the GBBW campaign this year, is how to get more from your meat by celebrating the humble sandwich – and in doing so, the campaign also hopes to raise awareness of the quality and versatility of assured British beef and give the industry a much-needed boost.

In addition, it raises vital funds for those in need in the farming industry by partnering with the Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution (R.A.B.I.).  www.rabi.org.uk
