I was discussing the whole rotten meat issue with few friends in the food business and I was surprised to hear the prime suspects, known as the Natour brothers, are among Lebanon’s biggest meat distributors and have few dealerships on Brazilian meat for example that no one else has.

This being said, there were two types of products being distributed:
– Expired meat that still “looked okay” had its expiry date changed.
– Rotten meat was sold as processed or hamburger meat etc…

Therefore, anyone from a 5-star hotel to a small snack could have received bad meat and used it in a way or another, and that’s probably why we’ve been hearing on a daily basis about tons of bad meat found in the dumpster all over Lebanon.

Of course no minister or concerned party resigned yet and it will only take few days or weeks before this whole issue is thrown in the garbage for all to forget.
