Deprive them of revenue

Following the action taken last week on DEPARTMENT, an ultimatum was issued to supermarkets and hypermarkets “for trade negotiations on the rise and a fair distribution of margins,” says the FDSEA 56. “The determination of farmers is set firm on this subject because it is a key to retrieve the value of holdings and finally hope remunerative prices.

The union believes that the retail groups “are capable of making this effort on food prices. They proved it this summer, which helped relieve the pig farmers in particular.  It is in this spirit that trade relations should be held: in the light of producers and consumers.

FDSEA and JA have decided to put some pressure on supermarkets by “robbing it of looking at all costs of sales” .
