The Organization for Competitive Markets is calling for the breakup of the “big four” meat packing companies. Together, Cargill, JBS, National Beef and Tyson process 85 percent of the U.S. beef supply. In a statement, Organization Interim Executive Director Ben Gotschall said the COVID-19 pandemic has “shown the biggest links in the food supply chain are the weakest.” Beyond this action, the association is also asking for mandatory Country of Origin labeling, commodity checkoff system reform and enforcement of the Packers and Stockyard Act. Hear from Gotschall in this RRFN interview.
