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.

Thin cuts campaign helps to save millions

Early trials with an electronic bite test show the meat industry could save more than £7 million, turning cuts graded as slower cook into thin cut steaks. This will be the focus of our marketing activity during Spring and Summer.

Currently, there are a number of different names for quick cook steaks, including minute, sizzle and frying steaks, which can cause confusion for shoppers. Using consumer research, the name, ‘thin cut steak’ has been tested and proven to be the most effective.

To raise awareness with shoppers, thin cut steaks will now be promoted with consumer marketing campaigns in 2018, including Great British Beef Week organised by Ladies in Beef, which starts on Monday 23 April until 30 April.
