Two men from West Yorkshire appeared in court today facing charges over the traceability of meat, following last year’s investigation into the horse meat scandal.

Peter Boddy, who owns an abattoir in Todmorden, and David Moss, his manager, are accused of breaching food regulations that say meat should be traceable from field to fork.

They were sent to Southwark Crown Court - their next appearance is on April 28. Unconditional bail was renewed.
