Further protests at beef prices as farmers blockade Lidl distribution centre

5

The Irish Farmers’ Association is continuing its campaign for an increase in the price of beef by staging a blockade at the entrance to the Lidl distribution centre in Cork.

At 7am this morning, approximately 50 IFA members blocked lorries from accessing the distribution centre, from which stock is delivered to Lidl stores all over the country.

This follows the blockade at the Aldi distribution centre in Naas, Co Kildare yesterday.

Farmers continue to be unhappy with current beef prices and will not stop until their actions bring change.
