“Dear Mr Ramsay
I was horrified to learn of the treatment of ducks at farms in France at one of your preferred suppliers of foie-gras.
Whilst I am aware that you have long defended its use, I hope these recent revelations and undeniable suffering will make you think again. It rubbishes their claims to be “leaders in animal welfare”.
Whilst ducks raised for foie-gras will live free-range existence for the first few months of their lives, they spend the last fortnight tightly confined and force-fed. The footage obtained by Viva! shows filthy birds covered with feed and vomit. Some had bloody injuries and others were almost blinded. This is the reality of all foie-gras production.
Please ban this very unBritish cruelty from your restaurants.”
