CELEBRATING BRITISH BEEF WEEK

Added 102 days ago. 27 April 2020

We're celebrating Great British Beef Week by focusing on how we sustainably source our beef from our trusted and respected suppliers.

 
The superb, high quality and tasty British Beef we use at Wiltshire Farm Foods is what makes us proud to recognise our beef producers and join in to celebrate British Beef Week 2020 this Spring.

Its organisers, Ladies in Beef (LiB), will this year celebrate a decade of raising awareness of the nutrition, versatility and sustainability of British beef. The 10th anniversary of Great British Beef Week (GBBW), supported by the NFU, will run from 23-30 April and continue to champion the quality of British beef and its farmers.

Incredibly, GBBW has helped raise over £90,000 for Royal Agricultural Benevolent Institution (RABI), who are one of the largest and oldest farming charities supporting farmers with financial support and care through issues such as flooding, which gripped the UK in 2019.

This year, LiB aim to raise £10,000, while promoting and driving the awareness of the quality of British Beef suppliers and help further bolster the British food industry.
 

Benefits of Enjoying British Beef

A great source of protein, iron, B vitamins and zinc, British beef is proudly produced to some of the highest welfare standards in the world by UK farmers, and is therefore full of nutritional benefits to form part of a healthy balanced diet.

Not to mention that British beef farming is among the most sustainable practised worldwide; thanks to its environmental friendly grass-based grazing production in Britain, its green-house gas emission is roughly half that of the rest of the world [1].  

According to a report by the NFU, the benefits of British beef include the following:
  • Net-zero greenhouse gas emission makes production environmentally friendly [2]
  • High-quality grass-fed livestock are reared in vibrant open environments
  • 87% of UK beef is sustainably foliage fed (and 70% grass fed) [3]
  • Grazing  livestock enhances the fertility of soil and crops [4]
  • High-quality beef can form part of a healthy balanced diet

Our Story: Sustainably Sourced Beef

We are passionate about sustainability and always ensure we are acting in the most responsible way possible when producing our award winning frozen ready meals.

"All of our beef comes from Farm Assured suppliers in Britain and Ireland (excludes corned beef)"

One of the ways we hope to make a positive difference to our planet, is to source our ingredients in the right way. Committed to sourcing food from trusted partners, all of our beef comes from Farm Assured suppliers in Britain and Ireland (excludes corned beef); as well as being members of the Ethical Trade Initiative, we proudly support British food, farming and stand for fair rights for workers worldwide.

We build relationships with the farmers and suppliers we work alongside who also share our values, which makes us proud to be supporting high-quality beef suppliers for our recipes in the UK and Irish farming industries.

In the video, one of our beef suppliers from Tracey Cottage Farm near Bristol discusses life on the farm and how the farm has transcended over generations.
