IMO they only agreed to this to be televised for their own gain, they didnt seem to like the fact that a decent budget free range sausage could be produced at all. I think they were hoping Jimmy would fall on his sword doing this. I dont think he did

Re: ANYONE watching jimmy and the giant supermarket on now

It shows you how hypocritical they are and cost is king. Last week he was trying to get them to take on meatballs made from British rose veal - they said public would not buy it as the word veal conjured up bad images. Low and behold Jimmy found veal escalopes in Tescos made with veal from Germany where animal welfare standards are a lot lower!!

Jimmy should look a little closer to home! His rare breed pigs are sold as free range when actually I know where there is a piggery with about 150 of them on there! Asa usage from one of these is 2!
