I think that the half a million euros must be the gross value of the horse sold on as beef, not the net profit on it.
You're right - the numbers don't add up. I must be misremembering the details; I suspect that your interpretation is right. But however you look at it, there's big money involved. This is organised crime, not mere accidental mislabelling of a product.
