1. Red Tractor
Look out for the Red Tractor label and buy British beef. Try buying and cooking different cuts, dig out new recipes and put beef firmly on the menu in your kitchen.
2. Understanding nutrition
“Beef is a true nutritional power pack, providing a host of important vitamins and minerals for children and adults alike,” says Jilly Greed, founder of Ladies in Beef. Understand the nutritious benefits of beef and share this knowledge far and wide with friends and family. Beef is naturally rich in protein and it provides iron and vitamins that are essential for good health and wellbeing. It’s also a great source of nutrients and is rich in zinc.
3. Share your support on social media
Stand up for British beef farmers and remind your circle of friends, followers on Facebook and your children just how sustainable British beef is and how its carbon footprint is half the global average. Shout about the sustainable way British farmers are rearing beef and managing the land.
