Hi fellow Brits,
Hoping someone can shed a little light on this for me. I know that Morrisons makes a big deal about being the only UK supermarket whose in-house butcher uses only British meat. However, I'm not sure about what this means in terms of meat quality. They don't specify anything else about where the animals are sourced or how they're raised.
The reason I ask is that I tend to go there for offal when I can't get to the local farmer's market - I frequently buy pork offal as I'm on a tight budget at the moment and their offal is cheap and frequently discounted.
On the one hand, the farmer's market suppliers' pigs are organically reared outside and allowed to forage around, and Morrisons pork ... no idea.
I guess what I'm asking is, in the absence of any detail about the source of the meat should I assume the standards are as low as is allowed? And if so, is it pointless or even potentially harmful to consume the animal's organs? I know that pig diets can be pretty varied, which is why I'm directing this question at pork specifically. Morrisons is the only supermarket I buy offal from so if anyone knows anything about their meat I'd love to hear it. A lot of the questions I see on here pertain to US meat.
PS. I have gone Googling, it hasn't yielded much. PPS. Hopefully all that wasn't too garbled :)
