Former director charged with selling unfit meat
A FORMER director of the countrys biggest meat rendering company has been charged in connection with an alleged nationwide conspiracy to supply meat unfit for human consumption.
Doncaster-based renderers, Prosper de Mulder, confirmed that ex-director Clive Boid was charged on Wednesday in connection with allegedly selling hundreds of tonnes of poultry meat which was fit only for pet food.
Mr Boid, who resigned from Prosper de Mulder last year will appear with 14 other co-defendants before Rotherham magistrates on 10 June.
The company has been under investigation by Rotherham environmental health officers since 1996. South Yorkshire Police took over the inquiry last year after the scale of the alleged scam became evident.
