Farmers demand solutions to rising prices of grain and animal feed

Protests outside the Presidential Palace today


Cypriot farmers staged a protest on Monday (21/3) demanding immediate solutions to the high cost of production and low selling prices of milk and meat.

They initially gathered at GSP stadium and drove in a convoy of cars to the Presidential Palace.

One farmer even brought along his prized goat who stole the show.

According to the announcement, the farmers, in a memorandum to the President, are demanding the following:

  • Immediate implementation of halloumi legislation as a Product of Designation of Origin (PDO)

  • Immediate financial support for ALL breeders after the "crazy" increases in cereals and animal feed

The memorandum to the President of the Republic was read by George Dimitriou, a farmer for 30 years, which he handed to the President's Press Office Director Andreas Iosif.
