Poll: Should our supermarkets be legally forced to sell more Irish food?

That’s what Romania is hoping.

SUPERMARKETS SELL PRODUCE from all over the world. But how much of it is Irish, and do you care?

AP reports today that Romanian senators have adopted draft legislation that would oblige supermarkets to sell more meat and produce from the country.

They want 51% of meat, fruit and vegetables sold in supermarkets to be produced or grown in Romania.

Here in Ireland, supermarkets aren’t legally obliged to sell a percentage of Irish food, though some go to lengths to ensure customers know they can buy Irish products there.

What do you think: Should our supermarkets be legally forced to sell more Irish food?


Poll Results:

Yes (5152)
No (2327)
I don't care (328)
