The campaign is an ongoing programme, where monthly new chef content will be streamed to all channels with social engagement, competitions and offers tailored to seasonal events such as Christmas and St Patrick’s Day.

Henry Horkan, trade marketing specialist for meat at Bord Bía, said: “We believe that innovative use of the digital space is perfect to build the premium and quality credentials of Irish beef. We are looking forward to building even stronger consumer engagement across both the grocery and foodservice channels.”
