As professional beef farmers, Ladies in Beef know what goes into producing the very best British beef. But as shoppers, we also know how challenging it is to provide healthy and nutritious meals, seven days a week.
Independent butchers and farm shops can help you decide what to buy, but not everyone has time to seek them out and most of us buy our meat from supermarkets. Convenient as it is, supermarket shopping can be confusing because of the selection of meat products on display and the variety of information on the packaging.
That’s why we have produced this Guide, to help shoppers who want to buy British beef to do so more easily. Our best advice is to look for the Red Tractor logo, which represent quality assurance from British farms. We’ve also included information on the nutritional benefits of beef as well as cooking tips for a range of different cuts.
The mission of Ladies in Beef:
To work with the supply chain to champion Red Tractor farm assured beef
to increase consumer support for the British beef industry through all outlets.
to own and promote Great British Beef Week each year.
Ladies in Beef will do this by working with supply chain partners to identify PR opportunities to tell the story of farm assured British beef to consumers, covering a range of topics from nutrition and recipe versatility through to sustainability.
We all want quality food that’s affordable and safe to eat, which is why Ladies in Beef support Red Tractor.
Red Tractor is the UK’s largest independent food standards scheme covering animal welfare, food safety, traceability and environmental protection. A team of independent assessors perform rigorous checks against Red Tractor standards at every step of the food journey from farm to packet. This means that the Red Tractor logo is an independent mark of quality that guarantees the beef you are buying is traceable, safe and farmed with care by UK farmers.
