Farm Unions Backing Doux Farmers

26 June 2012, at 9:16am

FRANCE - The announcement on Friday that the troubled French poultry group Doux was to be put up for sale increased the pressure on the farmers, according to the French farming union FNSEA.

The union said that together with the other unions, JA and CFA, it was working with the farmers and breeders affected by the Doux collapse to ensure continued supplies of fees and gas and other essentials.

The unions have also stepped in immediately a farmer had reported difficulties, the union said.

FNSEA said that FNSEA, JA and CFA continue to defend and support a national strategy to ensure farms operate on a daily basis and to ensure that the claims flo farmers are addressed and resolved as soon as possible.

The unions said they also want to ensure a genuine plan is laid out to secure the future of the farmers involved.

"The announcement by the legal representative of the sale of the group does not change the strategy implementation," FNSEA said.

"The heads of three unions are continuing in their efforts to secure a future for all industry players involved."
