A fancy restaurant, a glass of wine with some melon and ham… Sounds like a plan, right?
Think again: behind your slice of prosciutto there’s a shocking reality.
In March more terrible images hit the news revealing extreme animal suffering in the pig industry, this time filmed inside farms rearing pigs for world renowned delicacies including Parma Ham.
The video shows mutilated and distressed pigs packed in mice-infested, overcrowded and filthy pens, never to see daylight or breathe fresh air. There is an unbearable scene of a pig stuck on his back inside a food trough, urinating on himself out of fear.
The pig industry wants us to believe that these are just a few “bad apples”, but the evidence of widespread abuse across the pig industry in Europe is overwhelming. The horrible scenes from Italian pig farms are only the latest in a series of investigations showing the same reality across Europe: pigs are highly intelligent and sentient beings, but they undergo systematic suffering for the profit of industrial farmers in total disregard of existing EU laws.
It’s time to show that you are no longer willing to be duped and that you don’t accept sugar-coated excuses from an inhumane and unsustainable pig industry.
This is your chance to call on the European Union, national ministers and food businesses to put a stop to this cruelty! Sign this petition and call for better lives for pigs.
Concerned citizens worldwide: pigs in Europe need you! The EU is the biggest exporter of pork, sending its products to every country in the world. So if you live outside Europe, please sign to show you care about the animals that are behind the European ‘delicacy’ products on the shelves in your country.
