In this week’s Down to Agribusiness podcast, agribusiness editor Lorcan Allen and EU and markets specialist Phelim O’Neill discuss the ongoing row over Ireland’s application for PGI status for Irish beef and why Northern Ireland farmers and beef processors are eager to be part of the application.

We also discuss the financials of New Zealand dairy giant Fonterra. After some very difficult years, the farmer-owned co-op and world’s largest dairy exporter returned to profit and resumed paying a cash dividend to its farmer suppliers.

And finally, we also discuss the financial performance of one of the most important players in the entire food supply chain – Origin Enterprises.

While not known to every farmer, Origin provides farmers all over Europe with the seeds, fertiliser and crop protection inputs that play such a vital role in our food production system.
