The National Farmers Union has been receiving an increased number of complaints about supermarkets demanding back payments and over-riders from farmers, and also supermarkets cutting the price they will pay.
There are plans to have an Ombudsman for the farming industry, but supermarkets are trying to block this. Also some people say that an ombudsman would make the retail prices higher.
