Statement on kangaroo meat
Monday, 28 April 2014
Statement from Jamie Stewart, director of the Scottish Countryside Alliance, on the inclusion of kangaroo steaks in our game meat box promotion.
“Our work with Kezie centred on the promotion of sustainably harvested British game and promoting an offer to our members.
"The inclusion of exotic meats was only agreed with the confirmation that the animals included were from managed wild or farmed sources. We have received reassurances that the meat is sourced from producers who abide by the legislation and code of practice.
“The meat is a product of legitimate and necessary wildlife management in exactly the same way that Scottish venison is the product of the management of our deer population."
