Also on April 17, Tesco’s boss Philip Clarke said he was “sure as sure can be” that the retailer’s horsemeat contamination problems were now over.
“We are a strong company and we have done exactly what our customers would expect [to remedy horsemeat contamination], Clarke told BBC Radio 4’s Today programme. “I am as sure as sure can be there won’t be any more problems with equine DNA in [Tesco] food.”
Clarke went on to say that the discovery of horsemeat contamination in four Tesco products “shocked us all”. The retailer waited quite a time to ensure that no further contamination was present. “Then, we did exactly what I hope customers would expect ̶ we made pledges to buy more from home.”
Meanwhile, the Food Manufacture Group, in association with business law firm DWF, is staging a one hour webinar on the lessons to be learned from the horsemeat crisis. Book your free place here.
