Curse of Jamie Oliver strikes down burger firm

The Guardian

By Simon Bowers

A Bristol meat producer, which supplies schools and UK fast food chains with beefburgers and sausages, has appointed administrators from PricewaterhouseCoopers.
TQF experienced falling orders in the wake of JTV chef Jamie Oliver's campaign for higher food standards in schools. The company, which operates from a factory in Yate, had been the meat manufacturing arm of Aim-listed Canterbury Foods, itself forced to call in PwC administrators in January. Canterbury suffered after the loss of a Burger King contract in 2002. PwC hopes to sell TQF as a going concern.
