This was announced by Federal Minister of Agriculture Julia Klöckner.

According to the CDU politicians, the meeting will take place on February 3.

According to a report, the retail groups Edeka, Aldi Nord, and Lidl are also invited.

They confirm to the Süddeutsche Zeitung that they have received an invitation.

"It's like David against Goliath when farmers negotiate with the trade," said Klöckner.

Retailers complain that consumers no longer want to pay, but are themselves setting ever lower prices.

In the end, the producer, who is left with less and less, bathed it.

"It's the opposite of sustainability," she criticized.

That should be discussed at the meeting in the Chancellery.
