It’s no worse than the mobile butcher in the local high street market.
Calls himself ‘the honest butcher’ and turns up with his van covered in Union Jacks.

The actual meat he sells is best described as ‘of no fixed abode’. Awful stuff. No traceability and grim product. Ended up feeding some to the dogs last time.
Implying that other butchers are dishonest ! What a tosser .

It just shows how well regarded the british farmer is regarded by the silent majority when they have to label nz lamb as british to sell it.
Thats why they try to trick shoppers by putting foreign stuff inbetween uk produce on the same shelves rather than give it a seperate aisle. Supermarkets do not do anything they havent thought long and hard about, labelling mistake is a bulls##t excuse.

exactly and is also the reason farmers should
Not be getting involved with contracts with them it’s all for the super market they play long hard game , also the reason should not sell dead, farmer should not do anything a super market wants as if they want it it’s because it’s in their favour .
