A Few 'Unscrupulous Operators' Don't Represent The Industry, Say UK Meat Processors
The group that represents the meat processing industry in the UK has called out a 'minority of unscrupulous operators' that are giving the sector a bad name, following a Food Standards Agency (FSA) investigation into the extent of the tainted meat issue in the country.
“Membership of BMPA is voluntary and shows a company’s commitment to upholding the standards and best practices that we promote," commented Nick Allen, chief executive of the British Meat Processors Association (BMPA). "It also signals a willingness to put right problems when they occur.
“Unfortunately, there are a small number rogue operators in the industry that seek to profit from deliberately substituting cheaper ingredients in their products. Often this kind of business will actively avoid involvement with organisations like BMPA and the food industry regulators."
