No horsemeat in meals at Queen’s Hospital, Romford

16:35 20 February 2013


Queen's Hospital


The company which provides food at Romford’s Queen’s Hospital has declared that its food has not been contaminated with horsemeat.

A spokesman for Tillery Valley (TVF) said: “Our current nominated meat suppliers have confirmed that they have not supplied us with products or ingredients that have been sourced from any of the meat suppliers cited by the Food Standards Agency and that their meat products do not contain species other than that declared on the label.

“All suppliers to TVF must be certified to the British Retail Consortium Food Safety Standard, an integral part of which is a full traceability process for raw materials.

“We purchase whole beef joints which are minced on-site by our trained butchers. These joints are traceable to the abattoir and cutting plant.”

She added: “TVF is in regular contact with all appropriate regulatory authorities, and will continue to be so until the current situation is resolved.”
