Animal rights organisation GAIA has published the overwhelming findings of a recent investigation conducted in Argentina and Uruguay on the trade in horse meat for export to the EU and Belgium.
It was conducted by Tierschutzbund Zürich and the Animal Welfare Foundation (TSB/ AWF), both partners of GAIA. “Once more, we have proof that the path taken by horse meat winding up on the tables of Belgian consumers is nothing but a succession of abuse, neglect and fraud,” commented the President of GAIA, Michel Vandenbosch. “We’ve had enough! It’s about time that all supermarkets stop selling horse meat, especially from (Latin) America.”
