I was shocked to discover that your stores are supplied by Hogwood Pig Farm in Warwickshire, as revealed in The Sunday Mirror.
Viva! Campaigns' findings at Hogwood reveal not only the widespread neglect and abuse of pigs but also the seeming failure of your assurance scheme to effectively monitor and protect these animals. The heart-breaking footage reveals a catalogue of pain and suffering that cannot be ignored - extreme overcrowding inside vast, barren sheds housing thousands of pigs, routine tail mutilations, cruel farrowing crates, filthy and waterlogged floors, sick and dying pigs left in a gangway and shed, no meaningful environmental stimulation and piles of decaying and maggot-infested piglets left to rot in a wheelbarrow.
Please tell me why such conditions were found on a farm that supplies Tesco? Please drop Hogwood as a supplier to Tesco immediately.
