Diners urged to check turkey provenance
The Good Food Guide is encouraging diners to quiz restaurateurs about the provenance of their Christmas turkey.
The restaurant guide, which champions local produce, believes country of origin should be given on all meat and poultry. It advises consumers who want to buy British this Christmas to ask about the meat’s origin when buying their bird or roast from a reputable butcher or farmers’ market.
This applies to eating out too – when booking, it says, don’t be afraid to ask where the restaurant sources its meat.
Editor Elizabeth Carter said: “It’s a shame that origin labelling isn’t compulsory for all meat in shops. But any restaurant serious about food should be able to tell you where their meat is from.”
