Meating a need
THE horse burger, etc, scandal could be linked to the continued quest by supermarkets and their suppliers to find the cheapest source of meat, for example in Romania, Poland, to seek cheap beef and other meats. These places are known to have weak controls.
Britain is renowned for its quality home-grown meat which is available from local butchers.
The British farmers have to compete for the needs of supermarkets who want cheap supplies to enhance profits.
It must be time for the provisions buyers for supermarkets to purchase British home beef and other meats where you get what you pay for.
Might the next scandal be when strange vegetable matter is found in vegetarian ready-made meals?
