21/06 - 02:24 - As part of negotiation process, the EU proposes to offer the Mercosur countries access to the EU for an additional 70,000t of beef. This new 70,000t preferential market access quota involves a reduced tariff rate of only 7.5% and includes 35,000t of fresh beef and 35,000t of frozen beef. The offer also includes 78,000t of poultry. This would be devastating for Irish and EU farmers and consumers.
