Tuscan farmers schedule 'red meat week'

Farms will hail 'healthy' cuts from Saturday

(ANSA) - Florence, October 31 - Tuscan farmers belonging to the Coldiretti labour union have launched a counter-offensive in defense of salami and Florentine beefsteaks, declaring a 'red meat' week from Saturday to November 7.
    Special menus featuring what farmers insist are healthy, lean cuts of beef and pork will be offered in farms and restaurants around the region following the advice by the World Health Organisation to avoid red meat.
    "Our home cured meats are healthier, because they are lean, not treated with hormones and obtained respecting rigid production discipline ensuring well being and quality of animal feeding," said Coldiretti Tuscany president Tullio Marcelli.
