5 ways to support Love Lamb Week

Love Lamb Week (LLW) will be celebrating its ninth year, with a focus on the sustainability of lamb production in the UK.

Running from 1 – 7 September 2023, this year’s week-long showcase will once again remind consumers about the exceptional taste of lamb, highlight the many scrumptious recipes that can be enjoyed by the whole family, while reassuring consumers on the sustainability of UK sheep production.

As in previous years, the industry-wide initiative is supported by AHDB, the National Sheep Association (NSA), the National Farmers Union (NFU) and National Farmers Union Scotland (NFUS), Meat Promotion Wales, Quality Meat Scotland, Livestock Meat Commission Northern Ireland, The Ulster Farmers’ Union and Red Tractor.

But there are plenty of ways that you can help promote Love Lamb Week and celebrate lamb’s qualities on the plate and in the field. Here are five things you can do;

1) Use our assets to promote LLW on your farm or in your shop.
