Fortnum & Mason Shoppers Confronted With the Truth About Foie Gras

Posted by 6 years ago | Permalink | Comments (8)

Our fabulous activists were out in force on Saturday to enlighten holiday shoppers as to Fortnum & Mason’s idea of getting stuffed at Christmas. By continuing to sell foie gras, Fortnum & Mason is endorsing one of the worst forms of cruelty to animals.

With huge signs positioned on either side of the main entrance, people entering or leaving the store were confronted with the grim reality of what it takes to produce the foie gras sold at Fortnum & Mason. Passersby were also given leaflets detailing how ducks and geese are tortured for this cruel product.

You can help by boycotting Fortnum & Mason until they make the decision to stop selling foie gras and by contacting them to urge them to stop selling the vile product. Please encourage everyone you know to support the campaign!

    some people just dont know where it comes from and how its farmed… if they did what would do? probably still eat it… why? “meat eaters” would rather play ignorant to it pretend it doesnt happen. surely theres other companies that use better farms?

    I understand that the right to choose whether to eat animals or not is one which has to be made individually, I personally could and have never eaten it and would never. But what I dont understand is how people can continue to eat fois grais once they realise the way the animals have been treated. It makes me feel physically sick so I cannot imagine how eating something so disgusting must make people feel? There are so many un-educated people in the world who just need the issue of eating animals to be explained to them, they really need to know what they are eating!

    I think that the more people know about the horrific way animals are treated for both food products and cosmetics, the more they are likely to stop consuming them. In a lot of stores there is little choice for the ethical consumer, and major cosmetic companies keep testing on animals, so its best to check on the internet to find out the ethical policy on products.
