Warrington Market benefits from horse meat scandal
8:07am Tuesday 26th February 2013 in News
BUTCHERS at Warrington Market are feeling the effects of the horse meat scandal.
They have seen shoppers turn their back on supermarkets to source their meat from local butchers in places like the market.
Roy Sweeney produces his own beefburgers from local meat sources and has found his customers interested in the scandal.
He believes the mixing up of different meats is happening when companies use pre-minced meat which makes it difficult to identify what meats may be in a batch.
Roy said: “In addition to having a proper audit trail of paperwork we would know by sight if a leg was from a horse - it would be a lot longer!”
All the butchers in the market are also keen to encourage customers to ask where products come from.
