The Pig Pledge


Most pigs raised for meat to be sold in the UK are suffering in factories that harm animals, people and the planet. We want to change that. The Pig Pledge is a call to collective action to end animal factories and to support ‘real’ farms, where the animals are healthy, have plenty of space to behave naturally, whose waste is a valuable part of the crop cycle, and who don’t need antibiotics because they are hardly ever sick.

Don’t expect government to enforce welfare standards, or limit antibiotics or the noxious gases from the overcrowded sheds, the only possible way out is for people to reject the system by buying high welfare every time we buy pork products. Together, we can make a difference, so start your pledge today.
