‘Horsegate’ – Protecting consumer confidence

We all want to know what’s in our food. Even if, like me, you have no problem about eating horse meat, you probably don’t want to eat it by accident. Who knows what might be on your fork?

The English Beef and Lamb Executive (EBLEX) and the British Pig Executive (BPEX) say that consumers are choosing fresh, traceable British meat. We can choose meat that carries the Red Tractor label and meat that carries the Quality Standards Mark.

About argylesock

I wrote a PhD about veterinary parasitology so that's the starting point for this blog. But I'm now branching out into other areas of biology and into popular science writing. I'll write here about science that happens in landscapes, particularly farmland, and about science involving interspecific interactions. Datasets and statistics get my attention. Exactly where this blog will lead? That's a journey that I'm on and I hope you'll come with me.
