Senior Lecturer Sean Beer interviewed regarding the horse meat scandal


Yesterday, School of Tourism Senior Lecturer, Sean Beer commented on the horse meat burger story.

“I suppose that what surprises me about the revelation that horse DNA has been found in burgers …in the UK is that people are surprised. But then most people don’t know anything about the food that they consume, and care less. If I came up to you on the street and said “can I put my fingers in your mouth” most people would call the police; yet we quite happily stuff whatever into our mouths without a second thought. Combine this with global supply chains, competition for profit and severe economic pressure and things will happen. A bit of horse meat in my burger is one of the least of my food worries.”

His comments were picked up by the Daily Echo and yesterday he was even interviewed on Radio Solent.
