Great British Beef Week is back for 2023

One of the nation’s favourite foodie weeks returns, as Great British Beef Week (GBBW) will be back for a 13th year to celebrate ‘naturally delicious’ British beef, renowned around the world for its quality and sustainability.

From Sunday 23rd April through to Sunday 30th April GBBW will see farmers, supermarkets, butchers and chefs uniting again to share delicious beef recipes, cooking top tips and real-life farming stories from our British beef farmers. Look out for promotions on beef packs in stores and on menus in pubs and restaurants during the week.


Jilly Greed, who co-founded Ladies in Beef with NFU president Minette Batters, and who created Great British Beef Week said: “We have one of the most sustainable beef production systems in the world. Using the natural resources of grass, plentiful sunshine and rain we produce highly nutritious British beef that is a natural source of iron, and can be very much part of a balanced diet.”


Further information will be released in the weeks leading up to Great British Beef Week 2023, which is supported by Red Tractor, the NFU, Hybu Cig Cymru – Meat Production Wales (HCC), AHDB and the Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institute (RABI). 

Look out for #GBBW2023 on social media and keep checking our GBBW page for updates.  For delicious beef recipes, visit
