“This is to be a pivotal apparatus ensuring some-more clarity on beef and offal markets, giving accurate accurate information on cost trends to keep a factories honest on a bottom price.

“We need it immediately,” he said.

The boss claimed that, while there was a lot of speak about building trust during a talks, a factories “have shown no seductiveness in this”.

The proceed they have imposed weight boundary in new weeks has undone and hurt farmers and undermined a in-spec reward increases in a agreement.
