Are you getting your portion?

MeatBoxes, containing a week’s worth of beef, pork and lamb, were launched today by TV chef John Torode and a group of butchers from across the UK, to show shoppers how much red meat they can enjoy as part of a balanced diet. Modelled on popular vegetable boxes, each MeatBox will contain a variety of cuts of beef, pork and lamb, adding up to 500g per person per week as well as a series of tasty nutritious recipes. The boxes will be trialled in butchers across the country on Thursday 14 July and rolled out if they prove a hit with customers.
