Support your local butcher in wake of horse meat scandal, urges Lincolnshire businesswoman
THE Federation of Small Businesses (FSB) Lincolnshire branch has urged people to support their local butcher.
The horse meat scandal has prompted the FSB to encourage people to 'Keep Trade Local' by supporting their local butchers and other independent retailers.
Many FSB members that own butchers shops have reported a dramatic increase in sales following the discovery of horsemeat in some food products. The FSB is urging consumers to shop local and support their independent retailers.
Sandra Dexter, FSB Greater Lincolnshire & Peterborough regional vice-chairman, said: "Independent shops often provide a better quality product – it may well have been sourced from a local farm and in many cases won't have travelled far to reach the shop. It isn't surprising that some local butchers have seen an increase in sales during the current scandal. We hope that this has a positive effect on the other independent retailers on the high street so that the greengrocer and baker also benefits.

"Shopping locally not only supports the shops on the high street, but the farmer or manufacturer down the road too and it puts the money spent back into the local economy. It has an important social function too being the focal point of the community."
