So what are our thoughts? Well it would be a perfect time to give the supermarkets a real slating for lying etc etc but…… that’s not what we are thinking!
Our thoughts go something like this……
Horse meat is widely eaten throughout the world, and it is not yet confirmed if there is a food safety issue with any of the affected products, but it is wrong that people have been misguided about what they eat. However, if people are willing to buy these products (often believing them to be the cheapest option) then the supermarkets will continue to sell such items! These value items are sold for such small amounts it is no wonder that manufacturers are having to cut corners in order to make ends ’meat’!
All we can say is that there has never been a better time to buy from your local butcher!
Firstly you support local farms and businesses and contribute to your local economy.
Secondly you deal with people who are not only highly skilled but also really care about the food they are handling
Thirdly you get to deal with real people as opposed to taking your meat from a chiller cabinet and can chat about recipe ideas and advice on how to get the best out of your meat
Fourthly, and most timely, you can see the butcher prepare, slice, mince and dice meat for you, so that you can see exactly what you are getting!!!
And Fifthly (is that a word) we strongly believe it can save you money. As the meat is such good quality a little goes a long way. Oh and it is so tasty!
Why would you ever want to go anywhere else???
