The case for rose veal

30 May 2012 by Janine

Jimmy Doherty Image: Channel 4Last night saw Suffolk farmer Jimmy Doherty return to our screens as he goes inside Britain’s largest supermarket chain Tesco.

Doherty’s mission is to price-match high-welfare meat products with their cheaper, best-selling alternatives. The first episode of ‘Jimmy and the Giant Supermarket’ focused on British rose (or rosé) veal and why we should all think again about this meat, particularly if we drink milk and eat dairy products. Read Jimmy make the case in his article for C4 ‘Why Buy Rosé Veal?’ and catch up with the programme on 4od.
