HCC Are Challenged Again Over Christmas Promotion

17 Jan

I spoke to another butcher at the end of last week. This business is  based in Pembrokeshire and one of my obvious questions was to ask about Christmas marketing from HCC. The response…………………..what marketing from HCC?

I was then told that although the company had been trading for 15 years, they’d never had a visit from an HCC rep.

To be fair, I’m not sure if HCC still have reps on the road. They did have two reps, but maybe these posts got the chop, sorry bad pun!! Perhaps, like many other official bodies, HCC are too busy to make calls on independent butchers.

    well it seems a poor Xmas campaign unless Kath is so clever she can find only buthcers that haven’t had HCC promo stuff!!
    So HCC Xmas promo doesn’t appear to have worked, and what you have said was planned has not actually happened, but why didn’t it happen?
    where did the big posters go?
    don’t think you’ve explained that to us
    what’s the problem on pork?
    don’t think you’ve explained that either
    Why not say how much was spent on this campaign and break down the money for us, so we know how much each bit cost.
    and finally what were meat sales over Xmas?
    and P.S why don’t you support our butchers through Wales’ top foodie magazine? Is that not an obvious way to support us?

    That’s how I view HCC, as a very expensive waste of space.
    Their priority is trips abroad, supermarkets and big shows, as local butchers shops are closing as we are at the bottom of their list and have been for a very long time.
    HCC’s Christmas promotion – what promotion?
    You lot are as unfunny as wag.
    You are not supporting us locla butchers, you are slowly strangling us to death.

    Pointless HCC, that’s what you are.
    Ignore us local butchers and ignore welsh country, that’s not smart.
    Focus on supermarkets, your large posters and TV, but ignore the only food magazine Wales has got. If that makes sense to you, please tell us all and then we can have a further laugh at what you are doing, which in theory anyway is for us.
