It will be celebrated with events and activities around the country, run in conjunction with Great British Beef Week’s charity partner, the Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution (R.A.B.I.).

Beef up your butty

Consumers are being encouraged to support Britain’s beef farmers by ‘beefing up their butty’ for Great British Beef Week. Research shows that the humble sandwich is increasingly becoming the meal of choice for time-pressed families. The campaign will help consumers get the best from their beef, from creating a celebration roast for St George’s Day and using up their leftovers in a proper butty, to advising on the huge range of steaks that can be used to make a perfect sandwich.
