It’s important to know your meat – because it matters where your meat comes from!
The bulk of the meat supplied in butcher shops, modern outlets & hypermarkets comes from the mandi as cost is the primary concern of these institution – this in turn means regular consumers are getting meat which is largely low grade, subject to temperatures above the required 4º C mark and more importantly unhygienic and unsafe especially during the summer months where contamination is most likely to occur.
Further, it’s important to understand fresh meat does not really mean fresh – unless it is kept in optimum temperatures & packaging from the time you slaughter to time you cook. If this is not taken care of then the meat is not fresh.
