Le Groupement des Mousquetaires To Pay Farmers More For Meat

Le Groupement des Mousquetaires, the retail group that controls Intermarché, has agreed to pay higher prices for pork and beef following lobbying on the part of the grocer’s suppliers, LSA reports.

Through a press release issued Tuesday (9 June), the retailer has announced that it has agreed to pay an extra five cents per kilo for both meats.

At present, le Groupement des Mousquetaires pays €1.30 for a kilogramme of pork meat, which has been the legal minimum for the last number of months.

The increase in prices is intended to be "remunerative for farmers," the chain says.

France’s minister of agriculture, Stéphane Le Foll, has been approached by farmers in recent weeks regarding the minimum price of pork, which they regard as unsatisfactory.
