IFA Growers have voted ‘No Confidence’ in the CEO Cavan based Manor Farm.
Poultry farmers supplying broiler chicken to Manor Farm voted ‘No Confidence’ in the CEO of the Manor farm group, Ado Carton, at an online meeting recently.
They say this is the result of frustration at the failure by Manor Farm to resolve several issues over the past number of months.
The IFA says that growers voted no confidence in Ado Carton the CEO of Manor Farm after there was a failure to negotiate and compromise on many issues concerning the specialised and dedicated role that broiler farmers play in the supply chain.
Some of the issues highlighted by the organisation were that growers looked for support from Manor Farm to implement a contingency fund, but found no support from the company management.
A reduction in production and throughput on Manor Farm broiler farms occurred without justification from Manor Farm management something farmers say Mr. Carton is responsible for.
Concerns over the way unfounded allegations of unauthorised medication use in the rearing of broilers has been handled.
The ‘no confidence’ vote, was ‘overwhelmingly supported’, and has been communicated to Scandi Standard head office, in Sweden.
Manor Farm has been contacted by Northern Sound for a statement on the matter.
