Humane slaughterhouses have a beef with industrial meat production

In this edition we look at how meat-loving France is facing up to animal abuse in its food chain. In recent months, several slaughterhouses have been named and shamed for mistreating animals after video footage was circulated by activists. Our reporters have been to a smaller-scale abattoir in Burgundy that wants to prove it is possible to treat animals with respect and still be cost-effective. The region will also soon be home to France's first mobile abattoir.
