Ramsay's foie-gras nightmare

ANIMAL CHARITY VIVA! – who recently celebrated persuading internet giant Amazon to delist products containing foie-gras in the UK – is calling on celebrity chef Gordon Ramsay to dump the controversial food stuff after scenes of suffering were recorded on multiple French farms belonging to one of his approved suppliers.

Amazon dump ‘very unBritish’ cruelty

ANIMAL CHARITY VIVA! has today congratulated Amazon for ending the sale of controversial foie-gras in their British online marketplace.

The retail giant – the world’s largest online marketplace – has now officially prohibited its sale after pressure by the campaigning group who, earlier this year, presented the company with evidence of the abject suffering caused by its production and a petition signed by over 10,000 Amazon customers and Viva! supporters.

Ducks Out of Water

Since 1999, Viva! has run a highly successful campaign to highlight the suffering of factory farmed ducks in the UK. Viva! investigators have visited almost all the major producers in Britain, exposing how these essentially wild birds are crammed into industrial sheds in their thousands and are denied all that is natural to them. Almost all duck meat comes from factory-farmed birds.  Aquatic animals - they are meant to eat, swim, dive, clean and play in water - and yet they never see it, except in their drinkers.

Fortnum & Mason stops "Duck Torture"

CAMPAIGING animal group Viva! has congratulated one of London's leading luxury lifestyle stores for ending the sale of foie-gras made from the livers of force-fed ducks. Although this is great news - Fortnum & Mason, on Piccadilly, have also been criticised by the group for not removing all foie-gras from their shelves. The move follows a peaceful protest outside the store before Christmas**. Viva! provided staff and customers with disturbing information showing the inherent cruelty of foie-gras production.
