Thomas O'Brien, vice-chairman of NI NBA, issued a statement last week complaining that Mr Forster had "consistently maligned Irish beef and erroneously put it into the same category as Brazilian beef".

Mr O'Brien, who said he spoke on behalf of the whole NI committee, claimed Mr Forster was out of touch with the beef industry.

"Instead of trashing the quality of Irish beef he should be voicing concern regarding the lack of quality control within the entire Brazilian beef industry."
