UK Food & Drink Awareness Days and International Food Dates for May, June & July 2019

March 29, 2019

I'm a bit late with this one sorry but here is the list of food and drink awareness days and weeks, as well as some international food dates that you might wish to consider for your social media marketing or web content during May, June and July 2019.

If like me you are required to come up with topical or trending food content for your clients this is a big time saver, or it could help you develop your own marketing plan and give you the confidence to focus on a few dates and ignore the ones that don't fit your brand.  Just don't feel forced to do everything - quality and authenticity is key!

And as always these content ideas should be part of your considered marketing mix to tell your story, sell your products, support your community and connect with your audience.  

If you need help with any of this please feel free to get in touch!  I am available to train you or your team in creating visual content as well as how best to do it from a marketing perspective with the right ratios of content to build an engaged audience and convert them to customers.  Please email me for my rate card.

You can also get a free download of these dates here so you don't have to reformat all of this text.
