Horsemeat Scandal Boosts Cornish Butchers
8:01am 25th February 2013
Cornish butchers tell Pirate FM shoppers are voting with their feet over the horsemeat scandal.
Hundreds of beef products have been pulled from supermarket shelves for DNA testing.
Now it sounds like customers want to know where their food has come from.
Wadebridge butcher Garry Dutton thinks it is time the balance shifted.
He said: "If we supported our local suppliers and producers, the money that we earn would go back into the local economy, instead of going into Europe and god knows where. It would benefit everybody.
"Price does come into it, especially with the recession. But when they (customers) are misled like this, there's no harm in horse meat, but I think it's just that they've been so misled in terms of what the product should be and what it quite obviously isn't."
