Twiggy Asks Fortnum & Mason to Stop Foie Gras Sales

Posted by on June 17, 2011 | Permalink

World-famous model and ’60s icon Twiggy has penned a letter to Fortnum & Mason Managing Director Beverley Aspinall urging her to end the store’s sale of horrifically cruel foie gras. Kindhearted Twiggy – who previously starred in an anti-fur PETA ad – joins a host of celebrities, including Sir Roger Moore, Steven Berkoff, the Duchess of Hamilton, Peter Egan, Jenny Seagrove and Carley Stenson as well as thousands of compassionate people across the country in calling on Fortnum & Mason to drop this “torture in a tin”.

As Twiggy points out in the letter, which can be read in full here, “Times, fashions and tastes change”. She further writes, “Other iconic British shops with food halls, such as Selfridges and Harvey Nichols, have listened to their customers and now realise that selling foie gras is a faux pas”.

Well put!
