High quality red meat is more popular than ever in 2021

The latest national lockdown has seen more households in the UK buying high-quality cuts of red meat such as beef and lamb. According to Kantar Worldpanel, cuts of high quality red meat sales have risen sharply since the start of the year. Premium cuts of beef steaks have risen by over 35%. Additionally, the demand for lamb and steak chops is up by 15%.

As many of us have been stuck at home for the last few months, we have more time and inspiration to cook more adventurous home-cooked meals. So that we can have something to look forward to! Therefore we’re spending more on premium cuts of red meat that taste fantastic, to create a luxurious restaurant-style meal.

As the restaurants are set to be closed for another few weeks; it is likely that this increase in demand will continue for a few more months to come.

You really can taste the difference in premium cuts of meat compared to cheaper alternatives. That’s why at Burts Catering Butchers, we love to provide the premium cuts of beef and lamb that really satisfy the taste buds.
