Butchers cash in on Europe horsemeat scandal
European countries are expected to step up testing of food products, in response to a Europe-wide scandal of horsemeat being sold as beef. The affair has shown consumers the long journey processed food makes to their plates, and some are changing their shopping habits and turning to butchers rather than big retailers. That means a return to the traditional butcher!
Frozen burgers and lasagnas have been removed from supermarket shelves, customers want to know where their food comes from.
