Over 70% of consumers want to know where their meat is coming from

Manor Farm Chicken in Cavan have stated that over 70% of consumers want to know where their meat is coming from.

This follows a protest held last week outside a Kerry Foods Plant in Wicklow when it was discovered that some of their chicken products were incorrectly labelled. While the label stated that Denny’s Slow Cooked Chicken Slices were ‘Made in Wicklow’, it has emerged that the meat is actually an import from the Netherlands.

Speaking on the Joe Finnegan Show, Vincent Carton from Manor Farm Chicken, says that companies are not legally obliged to state the origins of their product.
