2021 Food and Drink Awareness Days, Weeks and Months

Food and Drink Awareness Days are ideal for those looking to enhance brand awareness and sales through digital platforms. It can be easy to simply publish a post every time there is an awareness day, however, we’d strongly recommend that you choose a select few so that you can generate targetted content which engages your social media followers. Choosing a select few awareness dates to indirectly promote your brand or a product could help you fulfil your business objectives online.

Below, we’ve created a list of Food and Drink Days which will help you generate content for your social media channels.

The list is updated every month with additional events. If you know of an event but it isn’t on the list, then please do not hesitate to get in touch and we’ll add it to the list.
