    Virtually all food service chicken in Ireland is from Brazil or Thailand. We eat huge amounts of white chicken meat here and don’t produce enough for it – much of our dark meat and offal is exported to countries that do eat it.

    If you are buying Irish “chicken breast” in a food service environment, there’s a good chance its the re-formed ones made from white meat scraps as shown so well on the Boucher-Hayes show on RTE

    Modern food science is disugsting, particularly with meat. Transglutimased “steaks” are another one.

      Meh – I’m happy enough that, if we are going to kill animals for food, we may as well use every last bit of them.

    You only noticed this now?

    Dunnes have breaded poultry products from China & Brazil in their freezers for a decade now.

    This is why I pay more for any type meat/poultry. Always make sure its actually Irish, not glued together crap

      I assume there is some sort of salad in this. And they are saying that the type of lettuce leaf may vary – it would be seasonal.
