Carrick on Suir meat plant says it did nothing wrong.


The company at the centre of last weeks horsemeat controversy in Carrick on Suir says it has done nothing wrong.

Work has resumed at the B&F meat plant in the Mill River Business Park.

The facility had its licence withdrawn last week when it was discovered that it had been sending horsemeat labelled as beef to a customer in the Czech Republic through a UK based trader.

Agriculture Minister Simon Coveney said he was “not happy” with B&F Meats but because it had met the standards and criteria laid out under its licence he did not have the power to stop it reopening.

In a statement B&F Meats say they had at all times acted in accordance with the terms of their contract with its UK-based client and its own documented operational procedures.
