The country's biggest pork processor, along with a Kildare firm, are among those on a list of five Agri-Food businesses for failing to meet the required environmental standards.

Arrow Group food processors in Kildare, Lacpatrick dairies in Monaghan, Starrus Eco waste firm in Cork, Western Brand poultry plant in Mayo and the country's largest pork processor, Rosderra in Edenderry, have been identified on a national priority list.
