French farmers have targeted Aldi and Lidl in protest of their ‘unfairly’ low prices – as British growers warn thousands of pounds worth of fresh produce may have to be dumped over delays caused by road blockades in Europe.
For more than a week, militant farmers have descended on French motorways in their tractors as they block roads and set fire to hay bales in a bid to ‘starve Paris’ unless the government act.
Activists have choked off major motorways in an intensifying standoff with the government over working conditions, incomes, red tape and environmental policies. They say the policies undermine their ability to compete with other countries.
