EU key to success of agri-food sector - McMullan

23 February, 2016 - by Oliver McMullan


Sinn Féin MLA Oliver McMullan has said membership of the European Union is key to the continued success of the north's agri-food industry. 

Mr McMullan said; 

"The north's agri-food sector has gone from strength to strength in recent years and the high quality of our produce is recognised throughout the world. 

"The agri-food industry is one of the many sectors of our society which has benefited hugely from our membership of the European Union. 

"I attended the launch of NI Food and Drink's 2016 manifesto at Stormont today and I welcome the fact it recognises that 'remaining in the European Union market is essential for market access and agri-food success.' 

"It is clear that people in a range of sectors, but particularly the agriculture and agri-food industry value the huge opportunities our  membership of the EU provides. 

"Sinn Féin is committed to supporting the continued growth of the agri-food sector and will be campaigning vigorously to remain in the EU."
