A report published on 17 December by the European Commission found that 90 per cent of consumers thought it important that the country of origin should be indicated on all meat products. But only 20 per cent of respondents said they were willing to pay 5 to 10 per cent more money for the information. It also found that consumers' sensitivity to the origins of their meat has increased over recent decades, exacerbated by the BSE outbreak and the more recent scandal in which horsemeat was sold as beef and pork in several products. My thoughts on this are the following : why the hell would requiring the origin of the product cost 10pct more ? Is labeling food a dying craft that requires  90 yr old artisans ? Also , the horse meat scandal is a supply and demand economical issue : as long as this barbaric custom of eating horses lives on , there will be supply for it. I've seen first hand dying horses , starved , with broken legs , crammed in a vehicle for days to be butchered and shipped to Italy and Spain. I'd argue there should be a Union wide ban on the export of horse meat. If culturally you enjoy a colt or mare burger , kill your own country's horses because here , in the Danube delta , there's been a mass killing of the only population of wild horses in Europe so they can end up in a goddamn paella. It's a UNESCO biosphere reserve and a world heritage site ! I'm particularly fond of my country's bio-diversity and I cringe every-time I read about European royalty or the very wealthy coming here and hunting black bears , wolfs and wild boars : when it comes to wild horses I feel like getting a sniper rifle.
