Red faces at Red Tractor

I don’t always listen to Farming Today but I did catch this story.  In order to demonstrate the efficacy of their new system of food traceability (introduced following the horse meat scandal), Red Tractor invited the BBC to buy some pork chops at Tesco and other stores and then test their ‘authenticity’.  To their huge embarrassment, one of the chops was identified as not being British.

Not surprisingly this has lead to further investigations in an effort to identify how this ‘rogue’ chop got into the food chain.  After a week, it seems that no one is really the wiser, as explained in The Grocer.
