I’m with the farmers on this. Think people can easily take for granted that the produce here is top notch.

It is indeed and if they stuck together and just stopped the supply then the factories would take notice.
Seems to me some farmers are still happy to supply animals to the factories.

Top top quality. But the problem is people are consuming less of it. Teak harvested from rain forests is top top quality as well, but the environmental costs are too high.


Things are changing: consumptionnof red meat has dropped by 20% in the EU

These guys are making stuff nobody wants

Fake news.

https://www.vgn.news/amp/fact-check-...r-three-months

Some weeks have been down 20% because of the heatwave.

If there's a cold winter or a health scare on another type of meat, then demand could go up.

Looking for a higher price for a commodity in a declining market?

Good luck with that!

Government spinning that carbon tax could increase by €10 per tonne in forthcoming budget. Hopefully this will be imposed on agriculture in direct proportion to the carbon that industry emits. Otherwise urban commuters will be directly subsidising the small businessmen who are currently picketing meat factories

AFAIK farmers are being paid less per kg than they were previously but the price at the supermarkets is the same. So someone is coining along the way.

When the price of crude oil dropped by 10% this summer, fuel prices at the pumps dropped by 2%

This isn’t a socialist controlled economy. The market dictates the price.


The Impossible Burger is on sale in a supermarket today for €7 for two.

Some of these businesses think they can produce a commodity and expect the retailer to pay them a percentage of the end user price.


They have the option of selling their product directly to the consumer if they wish.

It’s a free market
