Iceland Food Company Sued for Meatless Beef Pies

The case of the company Gæðakokkar in Borgarnes, West Iceland, whose beef pies turned out not to contain any meat, has been filed to the police. The company is accused of deceit and of being in breach of two articles of the laws on food products.

Helgi Helgason, managing director of the West Iceland Health Protection Authority, told that they had also sent a blistering letter to the company.

The letter stated that if the work methods of Gæðakokkar when producing food items are not improved, their operating license will be reconsidered.

The police will now decide whether Gæðakokkar will be charged.
