Agriculture: Farmers’ President: We need higher food prices

The German Farmers’ Day is coming up in Cottbus. An opportunity for the association president to present consumers with a bill.

Farmers’ Association President Joachim Rukwied is campaigning for higher food prices. Before the German Farmers’ Day, which begins today in Cottbus, Rukwied told the Redaktionsnetzwerk Deutschland (RND): “Consumers must be aware that food from Germany, such as meat or sausage, is produced to higher standards than elsewhere. These foods must therefore also have a higher price.”

“We need a social consensus that food from Germany cannot be taken for granted and must also have its value,” warned Rukwied. “Otherwise we will increasingly import food from abroad and further reduce regional, domestic agriculture.”
