    How about PGI status for Irish food so that dairy and meat products from the UK can’t be described as Irish? Getting harder to find chicken from the Republic in supermarkets these days and cheap Northern milk is taking over the shelves in some shops.

    What an absolute load of rubbish and general waste of money.

    The game will be up on this kinda shite when the Brits decide they are going to make sure Cheddar Cheese only comes from the Cheddar Gorge.

    @Joe835 was in Lidl the other day and looked at their Irish cheese and Irish eggs. Both came from the UK. I was less than impressed.

      Last time I checked part of Ireland was actually in the United Kingdom. If this is a problem for you, then you know what to do…

      There should be more of a big deal made of this; the National Dairy Council have a special logo for milk from the Republic but Bord Bia allow their logo to be used on chicken from the North – it’s crazy!

      Northern Ireland produce should have a Union Jack on it so people know who their purchase is ultimately benefitting!
