EPISODE 6: WHAT’S THE REAL STORY BEHIND CHLORINATED CHICKEN?
We’re told we have world leading chicken standards here in Britain – but what does that actually mean and why does it matter?
In her last episode, Emma chatted with Red Tractor farmer, Ed, and got a glimpse into life on a Certified Standards chicken farm. You can still check out her visit here.
However, after hearing a lot of confusing stories about chicken standards in the media recently, Emma still has some questions that need answering. What is the real story behind chlorinated chicken? And how does the UK compare with other countries on our welfare standards in general?
To get some answers, Emma caught up with University Professor and leading independent food safety expert, Guy Poppy, who explains the difference in safety and hygiene standards here in the UK versus other countries.
Get the facts from Guy in Emma’s latest video…
The Red Tractor logo means you can be safe in the knowledge that our inspectors have checked and documented every step of the food journey from farm to pack.
We insist on rigorous production standards, so we don’t allow things like chlorine washed meat or irresponsible use of animal medicines on farms in our good food chain. Just good quality British food at its seasonal best.
