Consumer marketing

Throughout the year we run a range of campaigns that aim to inform and inspire consumers about the nutritional benefits of beef and lamb produced in the UK.

Our campaigns feature themed cuisines all of which are influenced by the latest seasonal ‘foodie’ trends, to reinforce Simply beef and Lamb as the go-to place for modern beef and lamb recipe inspiration.

Recipe themes are carried through to the Simply Beef and Lamb Facebook and Twitter accounts.
