The Paris-based federation of the French butchers' cooperative (COOBOF) became the latest member of Zentrag, the Central Cooperative of the European Meat Trade.
"This sees Zentrag further expanding its sphere of activity. It now has 55 members in Germany, Austria, Luxembourg, Switzerland and France, making it the largest meat trade cooperative alliance in Europe," said Zentrag spokesman Anton Wahl after the agreement was signed in Paris.
CFBTC, the French butchers' federation, headed by President Christian Le Lann, also joined to demonstrate solidarity with the German butchery sector.
