Commissioner Hogan vows to tackle supply chain profit-taking
06/01/2015

Today at the Irish Farmers Association 60th Anniversary in Dublin, Commissioner for Agriculture and Rural Development Phil Hogan vowed to tackle the problems in the food supply chain which mean that consumers pay too much for groceries and farmers pay too much for inputs such as fertiliser, even at a time of falling oil and gas prices.

He said that he thought that the current scope of the EU Supply Chain Initiative was at present too narrow to deal with all relevant actors.

Mr Hogan said that he will work with his fellow Commissioners to improve the situation.
