Fire Up For Summer
Summer is here and now is the time to fire up the BBQ. From May we are launching #FireUpForSummer, a campaign to encourage Brits to elevate the standard of their barbeques.
The #FireUpForSummer digital campaign will inspire consumers to use premium cuts, showing off the ease and versatility of cooking with beef, lamb and pork steaks on the barbecue. Specially-created guides, videos and live ‘cookalongs’ from expert BBQ Pitmasters on our consumer facing websites and social channels will encourage bringing new flavours and recipes to this much-loved meal occasion.
The barbecue meal occasion
With this summer potentially seeing an easing of Covid restrictions, barbecues offer a great way to bring families and friends together. 2020 saw the biggest annual rise in barbecue occasions, up 44% year-on-year. This amounted to 100 million barbecue meals during summer 2020.
Messaging will be targeted at different levels of cooking experience, with tips on how to get the best out different types of barbecues and cuts of meat readily available. Barbecue lovers across the country will be reminded that no matter their level of expertise, anybody can put together a tasty and stress-free barbecue occasion.
The campaign will have digital and social media support from May 17 (to coincide with the lifting of the current “rule of six” restrictions), through to the August Bank Holiday and includes National BBQ Week from July 2 to July 11 2021.
