Re: The Brexit referendum thread: potential consequences for GB, EU and the Brits in

Given the choice between battery-raised chicken and organic chicken, I wonder which option most people in the UK who voted in the referendum would choose.

"Free-range accounts for 5% and organic 1% of UK chicken production, according to the British Poultry Council. The remaining 94% comes from intensively reared birds."

"As of 2014, approximately 95% of eggs in the U.S. were produced in battery cages."

I'm sure most people won't care which country it comes from, how it was raised and whether it was chlorinated or not, as long as it's cheap.
If people are too stupid to care about what they put in their mouths then that's on the them. It shouldn't take away the choice though.

I was at one of Rolli's Steakhouses last night, on the menu was this piece of information regarding the meat that has been imported from the US:

There in plain view for all to read. In our adopted home of Switzerland too. If it's OK for Switzerland then it can be OK for the UK. As long as it is correctly labelled then I don't see an issue.
