STATEMENT FROM ICSA ON BEEF FORUM

1 OCTOBER 2018

ICSA has decided not to attend the upcoming Beef Forum scheduled for Wednesday 3 October due to the lack of solidarity shown by meat processors in recent weeks.

Addressing the issue, ICSA president Patrick Kent said “Cutting prices week after week is shameful. It shows complete contempt for farmers and is particularly egregious when many are on their knees due to increased costs. There is no point in attending a roundtable discussion when factories are attending in bad faith.”
