…as Irish beef exporter rubbishes chemical claims

The Irish company that supplies beef products to Zambeef has described claims that it contaminates its products with aromatic aldehydes for preservation as utter rubbish.

Speaking in a telephone interview with the Daily Nation Q.K Meats Limited of Ireland spokesperson Dan Kelleher said that such claims were trash talk aimed at damaging the image of the company.

“I have heard about that and thanks that you are the first one to call us to find out the truth about this matter. It is total rubbish. This is utter rubbish suggesting that we use the chemicals to preserve our beef products we export to Africa and the European Union community.

“We keep our beef products in high and internationally standardized refrigerators and not what is being said in your country,” said Mr Kelleher . He said that his company supplied beef products to many countries in the European Union, Africa, and other countries adding that it was strange that it was being dragged into unethical activities. Mr. Kelleher said that those that doubted the transparency manner and standards set for exports in that country should have time to visit its abattoirs and other storage facilities before making such damaging statements.

“We maintain a high standard of beef products that should satisfy the international community. There is serious scrutiny of our products before they are exported to other countries. So those claims are extremely strange and uncalled for,” he said.
