He said the meeting was attended by 180 people. There was an acceptance by stakeholders that the industry is in crisis and those in attendance were keen to support a survival plan.

Mr Walshe accused the Government of hypocrisy in allowing foreign meat imports, while Irish producers are not allowed access to imported animal feed. He said this was a disgrace. Irish people were being conned into thinking they are buying Irish products.
