Let’s End Factory Farming

Factory farmed pork may seem cheap on the supermarket shelf, but the true costs are felt by the health of animals, farmers, consumers & the environment. With your support we can continue to campaign against the powerful global corporations that are damaging our food system, while also supporting a network of smaller scale, high welfare pig farms, local abattoirs and butchers across the UK.

Ban Low Welfare Imports

Most UK retailers source cheap pork from outside of the UK, forcing our farmers to get bigger & intensify, or go bust. For our high welfare farmers to survive, tell MPs to ban low welfare imports.

“Use the power of your purse to only buy from real farms, not animal factories. When buying pork, look for the high welfare labels RSPCA Assured, Free Range or best of all Organic. Go direct to the farmer via farmers’ markets, online or local box schemes.”
