No horse in Norse as director confirms Devon school meals have full product traceability
Trading Standards in Devon have confirmed that beef meals supplied by the county’s major school meals supplier Devon Norse has full product traceability.
“We have always sourced produce locally wherever possible,” said Devon Norse Managing Director Ray Beale. “Our beef burgers are either home made using locally sourced Westcountry beef, or made especially for us using the same high quality ingredients.”
“The confirmation by Trading Standards that our products are both safe and made with full-traceability beef will reassure parents and school staff," Mr Beale added.
In February it was revealed that Horsemeat had been discovered in products produced by the company￼ that supplied catering services for Exeter Royal Academy for Deaf Education.

French firm Sodexo, which also supplies hospitals, discovered “equine DNA” in one beef burger and two minced beef products from a supplier which would have been cooked for clients￼.
The school responded to the news by carrying carrying out an "immediate review of its catering", a spokesperson for the deaf academy said:
“In the light of the information received from Sodexo, we have immediately reviewed our catering. We have now switched to using all fresh, rather than frozen, minced and diced beef in our meals. The sausages that have been withdrawn will be replaced by fresh pork sausages from the butcher.”
