Both sides in the beef dispute will attempt to find a solution to the ongoing stalemate at talks today.

Meat Industry Ireland has confirmed it's entering the negotiations organised by the Agriculture Minister, Michael Creed.

He says he expects all sides to recognise the urgency of the situation, and to enter talks in good faith.

Beef Plan Movement South West Chairman, Dermot O'Brien says farmers must get a fair price for their beef.

Farmers are warning that the prices they are being offered for their cattle dropped once again this year. They are calling for the prices to reflect the importance of their place on the supply chain.

Yesterday German supermarket chain, Aldi, said it will start re-labelling some Irish beef as “processed in the UK” from today.

The chain said the ongoing pickets outside processing plants in Ireland have led to “industry-wide availability issues” for Irish beef.

It said some of its suppliers have now been forced to process their meat outside the country.

It said its Irish meats are all still Bord Bia approved.

“In light of industry-wide availability issues, to ensure we have a full range of fresh beef and pork products for our customers, some of our Irish beef and pork suppliers have processed Irish beef and pork at their UK based processing facilities, all of which are Quality Assured by Bord Bia,” it said.

“This is clearly reflected on our products’ packaging.

“We have also placed notices in our stores to ensure our customers are fully aware of the situation.”
