Horse Meat


Thursday 14 February 2013

In response to the scandal about horse meat found in food from supermarkets and commenting on school meals, Cllr Steve Curran, cabinet member for education at the council, said: "I'd like to reassure parents that our catering service does not serve any menu items made from processed beef.

"The food we purchase - beef, lamb, chicken and turkey - is British Farm Assured, supplied by a selected local butcher, and is fully traceable.

"This is not the cheapest way of buying meat, but gives us confidence that the meat we serve is as described, and free from any sort of contamination. We are closely monitoring the situation and will take action if required by the government or Food Standards Agency.”
