THE distribution company connected to the rotten meat scandal has announced that they too will take the dodgy company to court.

The Association of Food Distribution Companies, part of Afedeco, will appear as a private entity accusing the unnamed company of directly harming their business, causing ‘enormous damage’ to their image.

Police arrested three people and seized 50 tonnes of expired meat from a Mallorca company, who was passing them along to schools, hotels, pubs and restaurants around the island.

“It is necessary to maintain the credibility that we have always had, and that is not possible due to these unacceptable actions – our collective will be affected,” president of the association Bartolomé Servera stressed.

The company is accused of manipulating expiration dates, adding blood, guts and additives to bulk up weight, selling out-of-date frozen food as fresh, and much more. The three people arrested are charged with fraud, forgery, crimes against public health, against the rights of workers and against social security.
