Of course meat scandals aren't unique to the UK but I wonder how much attention is being given to learning from other countries responses. While we talk of delisting suppliers and rapping them across the knuckles, others aren't just so laissez faire. If the UK are considering others responses I would be interested to hear how effective and transferable they consider the response from Johannesburg, specifically the risk of 10 years in prison for false food labelling.
While lost sales may be a real cause for concern we still don't seem to be getting on top of the situation, in fact if anything things are getting worse. There needs to be something which really says this will never happen again - perhaps a jail sentence is required or a ban from supplying any food products anywhere in Europe. What are the chances?
