WHEN IS PORK IRISH AND WHEN IS IT ...SOMETHING ELSE
Recently, we saw a well known ham proclaiming "Made in Co Wicklow"- what does that mean? Louise Denvir went and asked shoppers what they made of all the labelling of pork. Following on from this Damien talked to Joe O’Connor, commercial Director of Truly Irish, and to John Hickey, the Chief Executive of Craft Butchers of Ireland. What came out is that new labelling is coming down the tracks to make it clear where actual meat is coming from, not just where it is processed. While Ireland produces lots of pork, there are good reasons why some pork meat is imported at certain times of year for certain types of processed meats.
