Lidl Reacts To IFA Protest At Its Charleville Distribution Centre

Supermarket chain Lidl has issued a statement in response to the The Irish Farmers' Association (IFA) protest, which is currently taking place at its distribution centre in Charleville, Co.Cork.

“At Lidl we appreciate the importance of regular and transparent communication with farming representatives and we understand the difficulties faced by many farmers," the statement said.

The retailer said that as recently as last week, Lidl management had constructive discussions with members of both the BPM and the IFA.

“We also know that our customers are hugely appreciative of quality Irish produce," the retailer added.

"For this reason we are supportive of the work of the Beef Taskforce and hope they can make positive progress rapidly in the interest of all parties.”
