Celebrate Porktober with Scottish Craft Butchers and National Craft Butchers
October 2023 is Porktober, a month-long campaign to celebrate the quality, versatility and affordability of pork. National Craft Butchers are joining Scottish Craft Butchers this year to promote the nutritional and value attributes of pork in support of British pig farmers.
Pork is a lean and protein-rich meat that can be enjoyed in many ways, from roasts and chops to sausages and pies. It is also a source of essential vitamins and minerals, such as iron, zinc, selenium and B vitamins. Pork can help support a healthy and balanced diet, as well as being delicious and satisfying.
During Porktober, Scottish Craft Butchers and National Craft Butchers members will be showcasing their pork products with special offers, recipes, tips and competitions. Customers can also look out for the #porktober hashtag on social media to join the conversation and share their pork experiences.
Eleanor O’Brien, Managing Director of National Craft Butchers, said: “Porktober is a fantastic campaign to highlight the versatility and affordability of pork. We are pleased to join Scottish Craft Butchers to showcase the nutritional and value attributes of pork from craft butchers. We encourage customers to visit their local craft butcher and try some of the amazing pork products on offer.”
Gordon King, Executive Manager of Scottish Craft Butchers, said: “Porktober is a great opportunity to celebrate pork and its many benefits. We are delighted to welcome National Craft Butchers to raise awareness of the quality and value of pork from craft butchers. We hope that customers will discover new ways to enjoy pork and support our local pig farmers.”
