Ireland: No evidence found of beef price manipulation

Food officials in Ireland announced this week that there has been no evidence found that prices of beef products are being manipulated.

According to reports, the Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine Simon Coveney spoke in Parliament this week and responded to a question on the matter with, “I am not aware of any evidence of price-fixing in the beef industry.”

The minister then called for any evidence of such to be brought to the attention of the Competition Authority.

Coveney also told Parliament that there are measures in place “to ensure that there are no monopoly positions amongst the ownership of the [beef] plants and these are enforced by the Competition Authority.”
