Farmer protests this Christmas over NZ lamb imports

Tags:


Farmers are threatening protests against Tesco this Christmas, after talks broke down over reducing the large amounts of imported New Zealand lamb on sale in its stores.

Members of farm lobby group Farmers For Action and North Wales sheep farmer representatives held talks with senior executives from Tesco early this month.

Farmers are furious that despite repeated promises to back British lamb, Tesco continues to source large volumes of New Zealand lamb on special offer in its stores. They are demanding Tesco commits to cutting sales of NZ lamb imports by 50%.

FFA members said they walked out of Thursday’s meeting when Tesco refused to hand over figures on imports of Zealand lamb as requested at a recent meeting of NFU, FFA and North Wales sheep farmer representatives.
