Farmers angry at what they have said are unjustified beef price cuts protested at an Aldi store in Tullamore yesterday.

Farmers angry at what they have said are unjustified beef price cuts protested at an Aldi store in Tullamore yesterday.

The farmers group have accused retailers and processors of short changing farmers and misleading consumers over the unfair share out of the price in the supply chain.

IFA President Joe Healy said;

‘Retailers are guilty of using farmers… to market our top quality beef to consumers pretending they are returning a fair price to the farmer.’

Aldi have responded saying they paid fair and equitable prices for beef.

Healy pointed out that beef factories have cut prices to irish farmers by 35 c/kg from €4.10 back to their current quoted base price of €3.75/kg, forcing farmers into a loss-making situation.

Healy concluded saying; ‘. Retailers’ claims about sustainability are meaningless without a sustainable price back to farmers.”
