Campaign to put steak on British BBQs beginsRaise the steaks

British barbecues have been voted the worst in the world with burnt food, backseat BBQ-ers and drunk arguments cited as the top niggles according to a survey that was conducted on behalf of our consumer marketing team.

The BBQ campaign is running throughout the summer months, calling in support from comedy YouTuber, Anto Sharp and online ‘Food Busker’, John Quilter – who together have more than 1.4 million followers across social media channels #RaiseTheSteaks.

The campaign aims to promote a variety of lamb and beef steaks and ultimately create demand for lamb and beef produced in the UK.
