One of the nation’s favourite foodie weeks returns 23 – 30 April 2023, as we celebrate the 13th year of Great British Beef Week (GBBW). Launching on St George’s Day, this year’s GBBW is encouraging the nation to enjoy ‘naturally delicious’ British beef, particularly in one of our most iconic meat dishes – the Sunday beef roast.
GBBW is a week-long celebration of British beef’s quality, taste and world-leading farming credentials.
The industry including farmers, supermarkets, butchers, farm shops, pubs and restaurants unite to recognise British beef farmers and highlight the work they do to support sustainable production practices on their farms.

We hope you’ll join us by tucking into your favourite delicious British beef dishes. If you’re after new beef recipe ideas and cooking tips head over to www.SimplyBeefandLamb.co.uk.
During GBBW we’ll be highlighting the innovative and sustainable farming methods from producers across Britain. The work these farmers do ensures that British beef is amongst the most sustainable in the world. Hear about some of the amazing work the Ladies in Beef community are doing below.
Hear more about the great quality and excellent environmental credential of British beef in this GBBW podcast with Minette Batters and beef farmers David and Churi Barton.
We asked Jilly Greed (Ladies in Beef co-founder), Minette Batters (NFU President and Ladies in Beef co-founder) and Adam Henson (British Farmer, TV Presenter and Patron of Ladies in Beef) for their thoughts on the importance of sustainability and GBBW.
We established Ladies in Beef to tell the story of British Red Tractor beef. As a mother and a consumer myself, I really value British beef as part of a healthy, nutritious, balanced diet, and appreciate the vital role livestock production plays in the management of our beautiful countryside. It's these messages that I want to communicate to other people.
Great British Beef Week is a national celebration of our fantastic home produced beef - designed to tantalise the taste buds and put some sizzle in our succulent steaks, Sunday roasts, cottage pies, and stir fries!
I wholeheartedly applaud the work Ladies in Beef are doing to raise public awareness of the true meaning of the Red Tractor logo. They have a real passion for the British beef industry, one that I share, and I’m sure they will be very successful in creating and promoting the positive image the industry quite rightly deserves.
Ladies in Beef have chosen the Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution (RABI) as their charity for GBBW again for 2023. Since being involved in this annual campaign, RABI (Charity Registration No: 208858) has organised more than 50 beef week events and raised £90,000 for farming people in need of financial support.
