Doux Elevage SNC, a subsidiary of the Doux group, which is the leading European poultry producer, and the agricultural cooperative UKL-ARREE brought an action before the Conseil d'Etat for the annulment of the tacit decision by CIDEF
to maintain the inter-trade contribution for 2009 at the same level, and for the annulment of the notice making that decision public.
Meanwhile, Gilles de Pottier, of CIDEF
, the French turkey producers' representative body, said it was working hard to promote French production standards to retailers.
However, on a visit to London industry organisation representatives Gilles Le Pottier of CIDEF
and Maryse Saboulard of Ofival talked cautiously of "the UK's increasing import requirement" and their ambition to supply "branded added-value products".
