The PGI Welsh Lamb and PGI Welsh Beef Butchers Club 


An initiative has been launched to support butchers that sell PGI Welsh Lamb and PGI Welsh Beef.

Benefits include:

  • Seasonal PGI Welsh Lamb and PGI Welsh Beef point of sale kits
  • Regular newsletters & access to dedicated information on our website
  • Invitations to exclusive Butchers’ Club events
  • PR and social media opportunities to build your profile
