Oh I see what you mean that's been going on ever since Brexit the down sizing of portions and packs and retaining the same retail price. More to do with Currency exchange rates putting pressure on pricing. They even have a word for it Shrinkflation! Actually says not Brexit, but in my industry it has only happened since the currency implosion

Cheap meat is nothing short of vile because you know there is zero respect for the animal behind it. I don't really want to lecture but i do think people should try the alternatives, its a lot better than a lot of meat eaters imagine.

TBF. I suspect that that is a long way from the really unpleasant bit.

On a smaller scale, but the same practices exist in Chile, when this country has the opportunity to show the way really. We still have the manufactured supermarket chicken, and two or three main suppliers. When I first came here, we had a plethora of roast chicken shops. They have all closed down because the sipermarkets took over the products - smaller and cheaper. In the past the 5 of us could sit down with one big chicken and have some tasty sandwiches. From the supermarket, we would have to buy two, so they are not any cheaper, and you can taste the water content.

We have the option sometimes of getting some country eggs, and we always try to buy when we are out of Santiago. It is only very recently that one of the supermarkets have started offering a free range option.
We buy most of our fresh fruit and veg and fish from the local farmers markets. Usually, but not always cheaper than the supermarkets, but it's fresh and you can pick and choose. The same markets are also good for fresh fish which gets filleted in front of you.

As for the chilling of fruit for transportation, it doesn't really effect the taste of the product. Most are also shipped in modified or controlled atmosphere now as well, which effectively puts the fruit to sleep (by stopping the ripening process).
The main issue with modern fruits is the push to grow fruit varieties that look good rather than taste good.

Original Quorn isn't vegan. What gets me is having to cater for Vegans vegetarians and the occasional meat eater makes shopping pricey and creating a single meal that everyone will eat a bit of a bore.

I tend to avoid meat now (still eat fish though) when I can, but every so often I'll give in. How can I get hold of some meat that hasn't been treated completely appallingly? Is it the butchers?

Beat me to it, that program where the Dutch scientist was studying it and stuck the seasonal mussels everyone was enjoying in the bars under an xray or microscope and you could see the plastic in them.

The bacon described on here sounds like the bacon you get in The US.

Hard a a rock and shatters when you try and cut it.

When I cook it, I practically have to eat it raw to stop this happening. My wife (who is American) loves the "crispy" bacon!

I don't know what it is, thin, yes. A lot of fat, yes.

I've noticed a lot of placed serving breakfast use Canadian Bacon with a maple taste. It is thicker and less fat, but not over the moon with the maple taste.

Well said. Haven't touched meat (or worn it come to that) for 30 years. It really is not an inconvenience. To me it is just simple: 'Is gratifying my stomach for a second by eating a bit of meat really worth another living being suffering and dying over?' It's as simple as that.

It's a fecked up world when you can't breathe these days without offending someone; how we've all become outraged about injustices to others and yet the ritual slaughter of another living, feeling, loving being goes on and on around us everyday, unabated, without anyone raising an eyebrow.

What's worse are the religious freaks that go on about love and kindness and slaughter animals in the cruelest most painful way possible in the name of their hocus pocus beliefs. And as a country we've just allowed them to do it. Shameful.

There are rules re what the animal has been fed, how it’s been kept, what veterinary meds it might have had.

This will usually mean the farmer has used their land less intensively and therefore had fewer animals, chickens etc. Their produce will therefore usually cost more in order to run the business at a profit.

Think of their common link and there’s your answer. Imo ham and some bacon from lidls are fine.
