as would have been is their product outsourced? Are the suppliers registered as an approved forward supplier? Do they use fillers, if so, what are they? Do they know that the products they are bringing in and being made into the beef products are in fact beef? What type of testing is being done to ensure this before it makes its way to supermarkets freezers to bought by the consumers? If Tesco would have checked to ensure that there were no cracks within the supply chain that they bought their products from, this would have never happened. As I see it, it was Tescos fault this happened. They should have done their homework before contracting a supplier to fill their orders. They obviously did not care where their beef products were being sourced from as long as it made its way to the shelves to be sold and create more revenue for the business. Now they are forced to confirm their products are what they are being sold as, and that is what the consumer deserves. Supermarkets have a legal and moral responsibility to ensure they know where their products come from. This falls on the procurement officers to ensure that the supplier is ethical. If ever a case demonstrated the need for companies to closely inspect their supply chains and avoid vulnerabilities that can arise from failing to do so, Tesco Supermarkets would be it.
