The Minister of State for Food, Brendan Smith, said the group of experts is being established to ensure that a viable sector in Ireland can continue in the long term.

At a conference in Co Kildare on the poultry and egg business organised by Bord Bia, Mr Smith said the industry is at a particularly difficult juncture.

A number of processing plants had closed, he said, and output has also fallen back.
