Meat Plant marketing plans kept private

Wed, 10 May 2017

The Environment, Food and Agriculture Minister insists the organisation that markets the Meat Plant doesn't have to publish its marketing strategy.

The Meat Plant is owned by the Manx Government, but a private co-operative company owned by around 400 farmers is responsible for marketing.

Geoffrey Boot was asked to provide details of the marketing strategy and confirm where it's published during this week's sitting of the House of Keys, but the Minister revealed that's not the Government's responsibility.

Mr Boot added that the policy is a commerically sensitive document, so Isle of Man Meats are under no obligation to publish it.
