New survey shows high prices paid by shoppers are not being passed on to farmers

A new survey shows Irish shoppers are paying high prices for Irish produced beef, however it appears farmers are not getting the benefit.

These latest findings have been released this week in a survey which was compiled by Deputy Denis Naughten TD.

The survey carried out this week, excluding special offers, shows that the farmer gets €3.76 for a kilo of beef while shoppers are paying on average €11.99 for a kilo of round roast in their supermarket, a mark up of 218%

Our reporter, John Lynch spoke to Deputy Naughton about the finding.
