I am not sure where to put this one (BREXIT, Vegan, here, etc..) - but it is important. We are worried that we are destroying the Amazon for Beef. Well here is one for the Remainers. The EU recently signed a trade agreement to increase the import of Beef from Amazonian (mercosur) countries so we are now getting this:
UK stamps on it, Produced in the UK, yet reared and slaughtered in Brazil. Awful labelling from Iceland Foods, this could easily be mistaken for British quality yet reality is it could be anything, no traceability, no vet med records and possibly full of hormones. Disgusting! Also in this day and age where food miles are now being looked at and the damage to the environment caused by livestock farming apparently how much of this imported meat is the British farming industry taking the flack for, this is pretty much classed as British beef. The carbon footprint of this steak will be huge compared to our home grown beef that is far superior quality. Cheap is not cheerful, check the labels carefully when you shop.
Well done the EU contributing to stuffing the British farms, the environment and the climate - They really do not care in the slightest. Amazingly the recent BBC omitted this in it's Meat program preferring to tar British Farms with the same brush as the USA and Brazil. I just don't get how can label food as being from the UK when it's from Brazil, I really can understand why people are going Vegan when this sort of thing is being sanctioned by our bureaucrats - money and vested interests trumps everything.
