Juliet Gellatley, Viva!’s founder and director, is interviewed tonight on S4C about why Britain’s egg industry is cracked – and the answer is to go vegan. This in light of undercover footage showing awful conditions at a farm that supplied eggs to Tesco and Asda stores across South Wales.
Animal welfare expert, Professor Andrew Knight, says of the footage, "You would be hard-pressed to find any birds anywhere with feathers in a worse condition than these ones. It would be painful when they’re being pecked at, when the skin is exposed as well."

Viva!’s exciting, high-speed tube action last week for World Egg Day was met with a surprised but overwhelmingly positive response by London commuters going about their daily business.

I recently had the chance to visit Facebook celebrity WeeWee the Pig, who fell off a truck last winter and landed at Poplar Spring Animal Sanctuary, where he now leads the life all pigs should lead: happy, safe, and loved.

Everyone knows that cooking for the family can often be stressful.
For me, this chocolate chai desert is one of the best vegan recipes I’ve come across so far. If you like rice pudding or semolina, you’ll love this as it’s a beautifully creamy and super easy desert that’s guilt free!
As I’m still in the first few weeks of my transition into all things vegan, it's been one of those go-to treats for me when I'm craving something sweet.
The tart I decided to make was inspired when I found some late season Hereford asparagus – and it was yummy and refreshing and proved to me, once again, that anything dairy can do, vegan can do better.
When I first turned vegetarian I really couldn’t stand the thought of not having cheese – and it’s the first thing lots of people have said to me since taking up the Veganista ch
What if doctors told you that smoking caused cancer, but you’d probably be fine if you didn’t smoke more than one cigarette a day? Luckily, they don’t, because even small amounts of smoke are harmful. So why don’t climate scientists follow the same principle?
A study was published recently that - once again - showed that a vegan diet is best in terms of greenhouse gas emis
I’ve known Juliet Gellatley a long time – a very long time – 26 years to be precise. When I first met her she was a young youth education officer at the Vegetarian Society but within three years was its director. She then left to found the vegan campaigning group, Viva!, which she still directs from its Bristol offices.
That’s a long time to be constantly fighting for animals but in truth, it started way before that, as a 15-yea
