A statement issued on behalf of Dafydd Raw Rees, of Farmbox Meats stressed the company denied any wrongdoing.
They have co-operated completely in the enquiry and provided all information when requested. The audit trail for the horse meat at the plant is clear - from the point of slaughter in Ireland, to the cutting at the company premises, to eventual delivery in Belgium.

The company confirms that all meat products can be accounted for and are from good, reputable sources. The company, whilst co-operating in this investigation, would wish to express its dissatisfaction with the comments made by the FSA which are untrue, according to our instructions, and should not have been made until these matters had been made subject to legal scrutiny.
The company officers and their families would like to thank friends and neighbours for their support at this difficult time.
