Lots of water came out while cooking last time & it was £2 for 500g. Still a good deal ( price wise ) adding heat

Not at all, I simply think that we should be eating higher welfare chicken and other meats rather than cheap foreign imports which almost always are low quality and low welfare. If you want to put this muck into you then go ahead.

Poland is NOT foreign

It's part of the EU , furthermore all it's products and services will be in accordance with eu standards & guidlines

low quality and low welfare stuff is also produced in the UK and in all countries, it's unfair for you to stigmatise Poland
Edited by: "batista" 13th Nov

I am not stigmatising Poland, I would say the exact same thing about any meat from whichever country it comes from including the UK if it is of low welfare standards, which this meat is.

Poland is foreign, any country outside of the UK is! As for EU standards and guidelines, they arent worth the paper they are written on and just because they have guidelines and stadrds that does not make them any good. I am against all cheap meat such as this which is proven to be of low qualioty and from animals with a low standard of life.

I have no problems with cheap chicken. If I think it's a bit suspect, I just stick it down my speedos and take it for a dunk in my local swimming baths.

Yuk from Poland no thanks

so where do you buy your meat from waitrose, marks and spencers or harrods ?

even the big boys have been caught shown to sell the same meats for higher inflated prices in the last few years

also, if you are not happy with eu standrads and guidelines , then also note, that the meat will be within UK standards and guidelines, otherwise it will not be allowed in.

and , finally, until we leave europe , Poland is not foreign, they are, as we are, europeans

I'm not sure how Poland isn't a foreign country, as the definition for 'foreign' is "Of, from, in, or characteristic of a country or language other than one's own.", this is a UK website and the EU is a union not a country, but that's besides the point.

I only buy red tractor meat from the UK too. I'm not naive enough to think livestock in the UK is living a particularly happy life (and batista's right, the big bands will lie to us anyway), but we surely have more control over standards when it's within our shores. Anyway, good deal if you're not fussed about that.

Polish chicken... yummy! When I was in Poland, I was served first class food at farmer's little restaurant. Chickens were running around the farm. I believe this is what we call 'free range'?

I tried the chicken twice last year and wasn't impressed with it

I'll stick with Lidl's or Aldi's not much more than this and British

I doubt the chickens are treated any better in Poland than the cheap British chickens

​Like the EU guidelines that let horse meat into the UK human food chain.

Any country that is not in the UK or British overseas territory is a foreign country. The EU is a political and economic union made up of individual nations.

Nowt wrong with a bit of horse.... I love Tesco burgers

I got fed up of supermarket meat and poultry. I now buy in bulk from musclefood and freeze.
I pay £25 for 5kg of chicken breast

This is a stone cold deal.

Chicken from Poland where there is less regulation on animal welfare and a considerable carbon footprint exporting to the UK.

On a side note, British supermarkets should be supporting British farmers. There really is no excuse to have chicken and beef imported to this country.

Morrisons are really good with this and that's why I choose to spend my money there.

I'll echo the above. I tend to buy from musclefood in bulk, but will buy from Aldi if my order doesn't arrive in time. The iceland chicken was pumped full of water and the quality varied quite a bit.

Anyone who thinks that all EU member states properly implement EU standards is extremely naive. Having worked for for many years in UK food manufacturing I can assure you that much of Europe does NOT implement the standards to the same rigorous extent that the UK does. We used to import production equipment from Italy, which was supposed to be fully compliant with European Health and Safety standards, but which was so far from compliant that it was hard to believe. After each delivery we used to have to fully re-equip the guarding and safety systems. As delivered you could simply lift off the guard doors and the equipment would keep running. Standards are only as good as the authorities enforcing them.

Polish chicken may be good, but if so that will not be due to EU standards, rather Polish ones.
