Ireland: Minister meets farm organizations on Ukraine supply chains

Minister for Agriculture, Food and the Marine Charlie McConalogue T.D., met with the main farm organizations and Teagasc yesterday to discuss the impact on Irish agriculture and supply chains following the illegal invasion of Ukraine.

Minister McConalogue and Department officials outlined the challenge that faces farmers in the short and long-term with supply chains from the region likely to be disrupted for a period. Considerable volumes of both global feed and fertilizer originate and are traded through Ukraine and Russia.

“Our great sector is facing one of the most significant challenges in recent years. At times like these, we must take proactive steps to limit any potential disruption to our feed and food supply chains. I know farmers will rise to the challenge and meet it head-on. By working collectively and collaboratively, we can ensure that the sector is insulated against the worst of what might come from supply chain disruptions.”
