The horsemeat in ‘beef’ products scandal earlier this year did nothing to improve public confidence in the food chain
VEGA says the food industry is completely confused and is blaming one authority or another. It’s a regular mix-up and it needs government attention immediately before further disaffection overcomes all departments.
The meat industry is completely lawless and ignores attempts at preventing things such as the horsegate scandal. It is, in short, corrupt and on many other issues it isn’t to be trusted. MPs seem quite inert and distance themselves from the scandal. Most of the press also is indifferent and impotent.
