It is a sad commentary on the economics and practices of the food industry that free-range or organic chicken is considered to be outside the reach of so many consumers, even though it reflects price inflation of the past 50 years (The £3 chicken: how much should we actually be paying for the nation’s favourite meat?, 24 November). While it seems there is growing interest in animal welfare and better eating habits, too many of us are governed by “knowing the price of everything and the value of nothing”, ie rubbish in, rubbish out.
