Update: The cruel reality behind imported horse meat still found in The Netherlands

Update: The cruel reality behind imported horse meat still found in The Netherlands

cruel reality behind imported horse meat 1

Back in 2014, Eyes on Animals together with Tierschutzbund Zürich informed the Dutch public via Tros Radar and the Dutch food industry via an intensive investigation report and film showing the horrible welfare conditions they discovered in North, Central and South America for horses being sold, transported and slaughtered for meat exported to The Netherlands. The good news is that most Dutch supermarkets, after meeting with Eyes on Animals in 2014, decided to stop selling fresh horse meat imported (horse steak, horse-meat deli slices, smoked horse meat) from South and North America. The European Union even banned the import of all horse meat from Mexico, thus horse meat from Mexican slaughterhouses was also put to an end. Certain brands, such as Mora, even removed horse meat from their meat-snack recipes.

However, in February 2017 Eyes on Animals conducted another thorough investigation and found meat-snacks containing horse meat from South America still being sold in a couple supermarkets but worse was we found it in most wholesale retailers and many snackbars in The Netherlands.
