Rose Veal

Because it’s the right thing to do, both from a flavour point of view and from an ethical point of view. Veal features heavily in the Eastern Mediterranean diet and we love cooking with it. In the UK sadly veal got a bad reputation due to poor and cruel practices which have since been banned in the UK and Europe.  Veal is the by-product of the dairy industry and so we should be eating more of it, as long as it’s rose which is an indicator of the calves being treated and fed properly it should be on your table.

Don’t just take our word for it, here is what Harry a veal farmer has to say:  “With thousands of dairy bull calves shot at birth each year because they can’t be reared for milk production, deciding to rear unwanted calves for veal was a no brainer for me. The welfare of my animals is the most important thing. If they’re happy, I am happy.  So choosing to farm under the RSPCA Assured scheme to high welfare standards was an easy decision.” https://www.rspcaassured.org.uk/news/veal-farmer-the-welfare-of-my-animals-is-the-most-important-thing-to-me/
