Who Will Next Face the Horse Heat?

I was talking to a friend earlier, who has a loose association with the Contract Catering Industry. These are the people who supply schools, hospitals and the armed forces. We both agreed that those sectors might well be the next sectors to come under the scrutiny of the media over the horsemeat scandal. They are all under pressure to supply food at the cheapest cost possible and we all now know where that can lead. If it came out that ‘our boys’ were being given horsemeat to eat, well, you can imagine the reaction of the tabloids. This has now gone way beyond apportioning blame to either the manufacturers or the retailers.
