Why is sustainability so important?
Jilly Greed, who co-founded Ladies in Beef, explains more:
“Great British Beef Week enables us to shine a light on all aspects of the beef production process. Our farmers are passionate about the beef they produce and are committed to delivering high-quality red meat for consumers to continue to enjoy.
The journey to net zero and being environmentally sustainable, can be really rewarding for both grass-based beef production and nature. It’s not just about nurturing the soil and creating species rich pasture for beef cattle to graze to increase carbon download from the atmosphere. It’s how you integrate and manage the land so there is food and habitat for wildlife too. Whether it’s planting herbal leys, new hedges and trees or flowering pollen and nectar areas on less productive land, the UK has one of the most climate friendly and sustainable beef production systems in the world, with less than half the average global emissions.''
