A promised Food Ombudsman will not be called an ombudsman or a regulator and will not investigate cartel-like behaviour in the food industry.

The creation of a Food Ombudsman office was a commitment under the Programme for Government and was hoped to offer a solution to disputes in the food industry such as those seen during the beef protests of 2019.
