Why Horsemeat Is In The FoodSupply
Captain Obvious To The World: What do they put in petfood? anything that is dead, anything at all. There has been a shady system at work for a long time. Things finally got desperate enough that these big time meat distributers decided it's not just for pets anymore, cause we lost so many cattle this last year as a result of drought. Keeping costs low, and profits high

just think about it, this isnt jsut one place that is using horsemeat, this is literally a soilent green scenario. There is not enough supply for the demand, what would they do? just let the price go sky high and stop selling? or do whatever they could to keep the money rolling

Jews may not eat horse meat, it's not kosher . Historically, in times of war (in Belgium), the slaughter of horses is strictly forbidden because the horse was an essential part of the war equipment. Even Roman Catholics are not allowed to eat it because of a decree of Pope Gregory III in 732.

besides that, the world is demanding more meat, as the developing countries want to eat meat as well.

i suppose there is not enough cattle on this earth to meet the demand, so they take whatever they can get to put it in where processed meat is needed.

Very interesting question Why Horsemeat Is In The FoodSupply, the answer is corruption.

Europe's unfolding horsemeat scandal took a new twist when it emerged that key intermediaries involved in the trade appeared to be using a similar secretive network of companies to the convicted arms trafficker Viktor Bout.

The Organised Crime and Corruption Reporting Project (OCCRP) identified an intermediary firm, Draap Trading, based in Limassol, Cyprus, as playing a pivotal role in shipping horsemeat across Europe.

Draap has confirmed that it bought horsemeat from two Romanian abattoirs. The company sold the meat to French food processors including Spanghero, which supplied another French company, Comigel, that turned it into frozen meals for the likes of British food firm Findus, some of which had a meat content that was almost 100 per cent horse.

Draap, which is owned by a trust in the British Virgin Islands tax haven, insists the meat it sold into France was labelled as horse. Spanghero says the meat arrived labelled "beef". Jan Fasen, who runs Draap and has denied any wrongdoing, was convicted last year of selling South American horsemeat as German and Dutch beef.

Better than beef but you can't steer a cow so horses have value for things other than being food. For food horse doesn't beat buffalo.

A workhorse who knows how to lean into his work is more valuable to me than a steak or some chili.

The outrage is over deposing of something that probably qualifies as toxic waste and putting it in the food chain and charging extra for it.

Make a global dump in that rift off Japan's coast opposite the nuke disaster, that motherfucker is deep. Nothing coming back from there. Add some creative berms as the current locks it in place as an extra level of security. If it is 'heavy' it belongs with the other heavy garbage and as close as possible to the biggest polluter of all.

If horse could be sold in India somebody would grow them for that purpose, same as any other food group it would be replacing. It would be North Americans that would have to start giving them names like breakfast, dinner, supper. so they don't become pets instead. Nor do horses have a split hoof if that means anything.

Could bears be cultivated to be the garbage pickers and since the garbage would be clean food they become a hunt-able product, sneak up on them when they are asleep would be the safest and their fat is a prize by itself so do it in the fall rather than spring. With the right cultivation program the numbers could be increased quite rapidly. Giving them the right location to graze would be fish and berries and as little red meat as possible. Lemmings if they could do it into the back of a truck with a freezer could be marketed, if buffalo coats were in fashion once then so could these as being marketable to 'strangers', probably lighter and warmer than buffalo also,

The reason is that there are many unwanted horses. People can't afford them and there are not many buyers.

Re: Why Horsemeat Is In The FoodSupply
It's really simple. Romania banned horses on the roads, so there was suddenly a very large surplus of horses that no-one wanted. Add to that the price of beef going up.

They made a lot better profit paying $5 for a horse that no-one could afford to feed, than $1,000 for a steer.

I don't know why. There is nothing special about eating meat. We don't really need it these days. Only in survival mode.

You can do just fine with a plant based diet.

Fritz, what a load of bollocks.
Horsemeat used to be eaten a lot in Britain, well within living memory so it's no big deal.
The fuss isn't about actually eating horsemeat, most people I know really aren't bothered, it's about knowing what's in our food that's important.
