SteakIf you fancy making something delicious (and super easy) for your perfect night in, don’t miss our current meal deal offers. You can choose a main, side and dessert (or another side, if you like) to serve two people for just £6. We think the favourite will be our 100% British Beef Ranch Steaks, with Irresistible Chips and Asparagus Tips on the side.

PosterTo make sure our customers know about our Valentine’s range and offers, Jen Shepherd from our Campaigns team has just launched our latest marketing campaign. Jen said:
“At this time of year, we all want to escape the cold and spend quality time at home with the people we love most, and we have some great products and deals to help make the perfect Valentine’s Day.
Our new TV ad has just launched and shows a couple at home together, enjoying our 100% British steak meal. We’re advertising in press too, to support the meal deal and showcase our Fairtrade roses and the great Thorntons and Prosecco deal for £10. On digital we’re going to get people talking about what makes the perfect steak – I like mine medium-rare in case you’re wondering.”

  1. I must say the old lady indoors loved her bouquet of Co-op Fairtrade roses. If I’ve learnt anything in 45 years of marriage it’s that a bunch of flowers will go a long way to making your lady forgive any misdemeanor!

  2. I’ve spent this Valentine’s Day alone – I’m divorced, but I’ve really enjoyed this campaign and I think we’ve done a great job.
