Greencore growers in Westbury protest

Growers to protest at Minch Malt buyout talks

Calls for a total boycott of Minch Malt were rejected at a growers meeting in Carlow last week, but farmers are to protest in Dublin today outside a Greencore EGM at the Westbury Hotel.

The sale of Minch to French giant Axereal is expected to get the green light at today's EGM but farmers are angry that more than 600 malting barley growers lost contracts.
