Horses for courses


Basashi (raw horsemeat) from Towada.

Do you shop at Tesco or any supermarket? Well, if you do, don’t buy the beef products! On the package it might say 100% beef. But you will be shocked to find that in some cases 60% of it is horse!

If you’re a horse lover that is the last thing you want on your plate.   Beef products containing horse meat have been found in a number of European countries including France, Norway, Austria, Switzerland, Sweden and Germany.

But I bet you didn’t know that horse meat is a lot more expensive than beef. So you could find that you might be paying more than you bargained for.

Harrogate Grammar School has NOT got horse meat in it so please do not worry!
