Tell Tesco to Dump Hogwood Horror Farm | Viva! - The Vegan Charity

Hogwood: Take Action


DAY OF ACTION CANCELLED

Due to Red Tractor suspending Hogwood Farm's certification and Tesco dropping them with immediate effect we have now cancelled our Nationwide Day of Action scheduled for Saturday 7 September 2019. 

How You Can Help

Since 2017, Viva! Campaigns have recorded a catalogue of cruelty at Tesco-approved Hogwood Farm in Warwickshire, including extreme overcrowding; routine mutilation; cruel farrowing crates; sick and dying pigs abandoned in gangways; the dead left to rot amongst the living; painful lacerations from brutal assaults and live cannibalism.

Despite Tesco's attempts to reassure its customers that they take animal welfare ‘extremely seriously’ and that they expect producers to meet ‘stringent, industry-leading requirements’, the pain and suffering continues. Enough is enough! 

Help us bring the plight of Hogwood pigs to the nation by urging Tesco to sever their ties with Hogwood Farm, once and for all. The grim reality of factory farming is far from the 'highest animal welfare standards in the world' lie we're being fed. It's time to choose vegan.


Join us in telling Tesco to dump Hogwood as a supplier

 

Against all odds, Viva! Campaigns have returned to Hogwood pig farm to expose shocking conditions at Tesco-approved hell hole for the third year running.

Now we’re calling on the nation to join us outside Tesco stores for a Nationwide Day of Action on SATURDAY 7 SEPTEMBER 2019 to share our brand new investigation, including never-before-seen footage inside Hogwood Farm.

We demand Tesco acknowledge the catalogue of cruelty and do the right thing by ending their supplier agreement. Join us in calling for Tesco to dump Hogwood Horror Farm once and for all!
 

In the lead up to the event, we're urging supporters, like yourself, to contact Tesco directly and ask them to do the right thing. Tell them that the abhorrent treatment of pigs inside Hogwood is unacceptable and enough is enough!

Download our social media toolkit to share our graphics online, change your cover photos to help raise awareness and post in your groups.

Please help us step up the momentum for the Hogwood pigs.

Don't forget to tag in #HogwoodPigs on all your social sharing platforms!

Dear Dave Lewis, Tesco PLC, Group Chief Executive

Since 2017, Viva! Campaigns have recorded a catalogue of cruelty at Hogwood Farm in Warwickshire, including extreme overcrowding; routine mutilation; cruel farrowing crates; sick and dying pigs abandoned in gangways; the dead left to rot amongst the living; painful lacerations from brutal assaults and live cannibalism.

For the last two years you have attempted to reassure your customers that you take animal welfare ‘extremely seriously’ and that you expect producers to meet ‘stringent, industry-leading requirements’.

It is therefore shocking that a third investigation inside Hogwood, carried out in July 2019, suggests otherwise. Hidden cameras filmed ill animals again dumped in gangways – ruthlessly kicked out of the way by farmworkers and struck with metal riding crops and hand tools.

One panicked pig was also filmed enduring a brutal, extended attack by her cellmates – being repeatedly bitten, trampled on and bullied, abandoned by workers and in need of medical attention. Attacks such as this are unheard of in the wild yet are increasingly widespread among factory farms like Hogwood due to the lack of environmental enrichment the pigs are provided with.

In light of Viva! Campaigns’ findings I urge you to sever your ties with Hogwood once and for all. Please do the right thing because enough is enough!

Yours sincerely

[Your name]
