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.
