Green light for talks on unfair trading



IFA President Joe Healy said the decision by the European Parliament last week to give the green light to discussions on banning Unfair Trading Practices (UTPs) is an important step for farmers.

  “This move endorses the work done by Commissioner Phil Hogan to address the imbalance in the food chain and we can now progress to the next phase. It’s a significant recognition of the fight by farmers to have this issue addressed”.
