Well done on being brave enough to take the Face Off Challenge.
We have shown you this footage because it is from typical British factory farms (in Norfolk; near Hull and Wiltshire) – sadly nothing exceptional.
Viva! reported all farms to the government – we had no response.
One particularly cruel farm where the piglets were caged (Poplar Farm, near Hull) was approved by the Red Tractor scheme and supplies Morrisons, who profess to monitor their suppliers. Viva!’s media coverage of Poplar resulted in the cages being removed – but the animals are still intensively reared.
You may be shocked to discover that factory farming is the norm in the UK and all these farms are legal.
The government will not end factory farming but you can.
Change is already happening across Britain. There are more vegetarians and vegans than ever before.
Why not give it a go? It’s easier than you think! Every time you shop, you have the power to choose kindness over cruelty. The power is truly in your wallet.
