Thursday, farmers, led by farmers’ union FNSEA, have placed “stickers” on dairy and meat products in two stores, to denounce them “too cheap.”
Thirty farmers visited Thursday morning, the two supermarkets in the town of Nort-sur-Erdre (Loire-Atlantique). Mickaël Trichet, general secretary of the FNSEA 44 (National Federation of Farmers ‘Unions), explained that it was an operation to spread information on which products of meat and milk that are too low in price.
The operation consisted of placing stickers on certain items to alert the consumers which products of meat and milk that the retail businesses do not pay a fair price for. “The prices offered to producers are too low. “ A producer added: ” With Lactalis, they pay just 270 € per tonne of milk, when it should be 360 €. “
