“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 found at Ernest Soulard 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.”
