Latest news: January 2014 - Viva! has launched a campaign to urge the Government to ban the importation of foie-gras in light of the recent upholding by the World Trade Organisation of the EU-wide ban on seal products. We believe that this now makes an import ban more achievable. That is why we need your support to help stop this terrible cruelty. Please sign and share our petition.
January 2014 - Not a single supermarket in Denmark now sells foie-gras after chain Superbest (who had previously been the biggest seller in the country) dumped it. All-in-all 2,500 stores across the country have now prohibited its sale!
The news comes from Danish animal group Anima who stepped up campaigning in light of the major press and public outrage caused by Viva! and L214’s joint investigation into French producer Ernest Soulard (who previously supplied Gordon Ramsay). Our shocking footage (see below for the link) made major headlines in Scandinavian press and was shown to millions on television. It even led to Denmark’s top chef publicly dumping it.
And now our friends from NOAH have told us the good news that supermarket chains in Norway are also now dumping foie-gras! Thank you for helping make this possible.
