While welcoming the news that Ministers Coveney and O’Neill have agreed to make a joint approach to UK retailers regarding the marketing of meat from animals exported live from the Republic for further feeding in Northern Ireland, ICSA beef chairman Edmond Phelan warned that a solution to this issue must be found “sooner rather than later”. 

“The concept of marketing such beef in Britain on an equal footing with beef born, reared and slaughtered in the Republic needs to be examined and progressed quickly,” said Mr. Phelan.
