In the midst of the scandal around processed meat products having different ingredients to the ones identified on the packaging (in some cases horse meat or pork instead of beef), Tesco CEO Phillip Clarke addressed the NFU on the afternoon of 27th February 2013 making specific commitments regarding Tesco’s product sourcing policies.
Gideon Hillman was invited to appear live on what was the lead story that evening on Sky News Business Programme, ‘Jeff Randall Live’
Jeff Randall discussed with Gideon the commitments made to UK farmers by Phillip Clarke of Tesco, the impact on food supply chain and the complexities around product control in the current food processing supply chain.
