- Many Australians are reportedly up-in-arms after news of ostrich meat in UK supermarkets made headlines
- The meat is produced in South Africa and is actually a very popular local delicacy
- While some social media users were repulsed by the idea of eating ostrich meat, others pointed out the blatant hypocrisy of their peers
Australians are turning their noses at ostrich meat. The local delicacy is commonly sold in parts of the Western Cape but it seems our neighbours down under have been left gagging at the thought of the strange meat offering.
In recent months ostrich meat has become quite popular in UK supermarkets and many Australians have shared their thoughts on the developments. While some Australians are upset the meat is being sold, others would like to see it being offered in their own local supermarkets, The Daily Mail Australia reports.
According to reports, it all got started when a UK supermarket food chain posted snaps of ostrich meat on its Facebook group. The food wholesaler, "Aldi Mums" is popular in both the UK and Australia.
According to Business Insider, it showed an Aldi outlet in the UK selling ostrich fillet steaks at around R320 per kilogram, with the comment
"[h]ow cool would this be for Australia to get?"
While some social media users found it quite inhumane and disgusting to eat the South African delicacy, others pointed out the similarities with eating chicken meat and tried to educate their repulsed peers on how the meat was farmed.
Either way, it seems Australians may remain divided on the issue for some time.
