Almost half of consumers say they plan to avoid buying meat from Tesco, Asda, The Co-Operative, Iceland, Aldi and Lidl, according to a report by the trade magazine Retail Week.

In a survey of consumers, 45 per cent say they will avoid buying food from supermarkets which have sold horse meat.

More than half (66 per cent) say they do not feel confident about what goes into their food while 73 per cent believe supermarkets, as well as suppliers and manufacturers, are to blame for the scandal.

Older people are most likely to blame the suppliers and wholesalers, while younger people blame the food regulatory bodies and the supermarkets.
