NPA supports National Butchers Week

15th Mar 2019 / By Alistair Driver

The NPA has been giving its backing to local butchers this week.

To mark National Butchers Week, we have been posting supportive messages on the Great British Pork Twitter feed (@GBPork). 

We have pointed out that only 11% of British meat is currently purchased from an independent Butcher. "Your Local Butcher will be able to offer you a wide variety of cuts along with advice on how best to cook it," we have told the popular Twitter feed's followers. 

For more on how to support your local butcher, you can use the hashtag #NationalButchersWeek2019
