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.”

GUARANTEES AROUND NATURE RESTORATION LAW IMPLEMENTATION NEEDED

ICSA president Sean McNamara has said the decision by the EU Council of Environment ministers to pass the Nature Restoration Law (NRL) today will cause serious unease amongst many Irish farmers. “As it stands, we have no clarity around how this law will be implemented in Ireland and what the consequences will be, especially for those on peaty soils. It is yet another example of an initiative being imposed on farmers that is heavy on targets and light on how those targets will be met or how they will be funded,” he said.
