Citizen editor: While supermarkets get a roasting over horsemeat buy your beef from your butcher
AS Citizen readers decide on what to buy for their Sunday lunch, can we urge them to back our local butchers and buy their meat there.
Over the last week since the horsemeat scandal erupted, shoppers have been turning to their butchers increasingly as the stories of horsemeat and false labelling of processed meat dishes have escalated.
In fact, the horsemeat crisis has, according to the National Farmers' Union, left producers of British farm-assured beef and lamb standing at an open goal with the ball at their feet.
We hope the shoppers in Gloucestershire recognise that this weekend. We hope they realise that our butchers operate with local producers and have total traceability from their farms

The horsemeat scandal seems to get worse by the day. Yesterday, Staffordshire schools banned beef from their lunch menus.
And while we realise supermarkets are angry with their suppliers of processed meat – mainly from the Continent – they cannot shirk their responsibilities.
After all, some of them have been guilty of carrying products with false labelling and the Government is right to threaten the full force of the law on them if they are found to be wanting.
