anyone managed to find 28 day mature beef locally, if you want real flavour it needs to be mature finding it in France very difficult unless you buy imported meat, I said difficult not impossible, and why is that you may ask? because abattiors in france are not supposed to hold meat in there coolers for more than 10 days

After Highland beef which was always my favourite in the UK, I like Charolais beef best for taste and get it from a local farmer, not cheap but good quality and no food miles and it's good to support the producers, they're a lovely couple and very hardworking.

Was just thinking it was a long while since we had a bacon by the box advert sorry thread and wow, how brave to pick on imported beef, in the current climate of French farmers protesting about cheap supermarket prices and imported meat.

Brian22bin,  as you have mentioned the freedom of choice to buy globally, are you aware that in there has been a trend in the UK for, several years now, of buying food as locally as possible?  

For obvious reasons it makes sense to buy what you can as close to home as you can.  Restaurants now pride themselves in sourcing food locally,  it's called "food miles", being aware of the impact on the planet of moving goods long distances when it really isn't necessary.  People are buying" at the farm gate",  wanting to know the provenance of what they are eating etc. some supermarkets buy from locall farmers/growers in each area rather than have national suppliers.  Obviously it is not possible to buy everything local but where it doesn't need to be imported or shipped for hundreds of miles it shouldn't be.

Tryval some people like different foods and not the french cuts lucky we have the freedom of choice to buy globally these days. Its not odd just common sense the option is there for us all no one will force you to use the service but try it once you may see what you have been missing.
