We’re dancing the funky chicken at PETA UK in celebration of some great news for ducks and geese! Following contact by PETA and members of the public, Ocado, an online grocer, has agreed to end the sale of foie gras. Ocado delivers food products from a variety of well-known brands, including Waitrose, Heinz and Hovis, as well as having their own range.

PETA’s foie gras exposé – which shows how ducks and geese suffer during foie gras production as metal pipes are rammed down their throats – was clearly all Ocado needed to make the compassionate decision to stop selling the inhumane product. And Ocado gets an extra high-five for supporting Sir Paul McCartney’s Meat-Free Mondays campaign.

Watch PETA’s foie gras exposé to learn more about how foie gras is produced, and take action on our campaign to rid Fortnum & Mason of foie gras. Please also consider making a donation to help save more animals who desperately need your help right now.
