Let's Eat Balanced 2024

Our bold and exciting Let’s Eat Balanced campaign launched on 1 January with three brand new TV ads showcasing British beef, lamb and dairy.

Appearing on mainstream TV and digital channels, the ads are also showing in cinemas for the first time.

Eight major retailers will feature the campaign in-store and online and over five million packs will have our Let’s Eat Balanced sticker applied in January.  

The campaign is estimated to reach 92% (42 million) of all adults. Social ads will appear over 48 million times and the press ads have a shared readership of more than 1.6 million.

‘THIS & THAT’ - Getting the balance right

‘THIS & THAT’ celebrates the naturally delicious taste and flavours of British meat and dairy and the role they play as part of a balanced diet. A little bit of 'this' with a little bit of 'that' is key to a well-rounded diet.

The Let's Eat Balanced campaign does not just deliver vital information to consumers about maintaining a nutritious and tasty diet; it also highlights the efforts of farmers dedicated to welfare and sustainable food production.
