Latest news from Big Barn and our producers.
This headline so soon after the Horse meat scandal shows how the supermarkets have become complacent. Are consumers really that addicted to supermarket shopping?
They promised fair labeling but are already mixing UK lamb mince with New Zealand to add value in the eyes of the consumer. Will it add value and surely their excuse of needing to ‘maintain availability’ is rubbish, they could easily have UK & New Zealand Lamb Mince on the shelf?
Complacency is a very dangerous word and often spells the end of an era for a successful business. I really hope this is the case as I am sure we would all be much better off without supermarkets.
Much better using your local alternative, of butchers, bakers, farm shops, dairies and delis. To find them use our BigBarn local food map. Watch out for ‘£’ signs meaning cheaper than the supermarket, or a rosette meaning you can ‘Crop for the Shop’and help build your local, more sustainable, food industry.
