Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine
440. To ask the Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine if he held or plans to hold discussions with the beef processing industry to raise with it the problems farmers are experiencing within the sector. [9012/19]
My officials and I meet the various stakeholders from across the entire beef sector, including the processing sector, on a regular basis. These meetings are a constructive way to facilitate detailed discussions around issues facing the sector.
I can confirm that matters raised by the Deputy have been discussed recently at such meetings.
