National Butchers’ Week is taking place this year from Monday, March 7 until Sunday, March 13 – and it’s the perfect opportunity to #SupportLocal with a visit to your favourite butcher’s shop.

Or if you usually shop at the supermarket to stock up on your meat, why not give an indepdent trader a go as a new customer?

Run by the Meat Trades Journal across its social media channels, the campaign looks to highlight the hard work done by butchers to support families across their community during the Covid-19 pandemic.
