The Canadian Cattlemen’s Association (CCA) is helping to lead the conversation and improve consumer confidence in the cattle industry.
Burger King™ Back on Track
In July 2020, Burger King™ launched a campaign announcing an open-source solution to methane emissions from cows. Unfortunately, the video focused on bovine flatulence instead of belching. CCA’s Public and Stakeholder Engagement team developed key messages that were shared with National Cattlemen’s Beef Association and were used by the Global Roundtable for Sustainable Beef in discussions with Burger King marketing executives. The result was an apology letter from Burger King and edits to the original campaign video.
A&W™ – Sourcing 100% Canadian Beef
You may have seen A&W’s latest ad campaign on Grass-Fed Beef. They are looking to source 100% Canadian beef and are also discussing the benefits of raising cattle in Canada. Having a major retailer talk about the positives of Canadian beef production is a win for the industry.
