UK Groceries Code Adjudicator To Address Irish Farmers Conference
The UK's Groceries Code Adjudicator, Christine Tacon, is to address a conference organised by the Irish Farmers Association (IFA), taking place in Dublin next week.
In her presentation, Tacon will focus on unfair trading practices and the impact on suppliers and producers on both sides of the Irish Sea.
Her appearance follows the publication of the EU Food Chain report, which the IFA says contains important recommendations on increased price transparency and independent enforcement to strengthen farmers’ position in the food chain.
“The report recognises the need for independent enforcement of retail regulation and this effectively supports IFA’s demand for an independent retail Ombudsman," said IFA President Joe Healy.
"This is necessary to assure suppliers that complaints will be investigated and abuses prosecuted”.
