Let's trace what we eat

THE current horse meat scandal is only the tip of the iceberg. Most of the meat in our supermarkets gives us no information about the welfare of the animals.

Of course the higher welfare products carry labels such as "free range" or "organic", but other products offer little or no information on how the animals lived and died. This means that the pork could come from pigs who have had their tail docked with anaesthetic, lived their lives in barren pens and never been given straw area to sleep on. I think its high time we were given a window into the lives of the animals we eat.

I'm supporting Compassion in World Farming's campaign to get compulsory labelling of all animal products, so we can know how and where those animals were reared, how they were transported and how they were killed.

    Oh come on Mr Jordan, how silly can you get? I mean how will it end? Next you'll be wanting a complete family history of the animal back to the days of Noahs Ark. The label is going to be the size of a small paperback.
