Pester pig is on a campaign to stop intensive farming. Now at the laundry throwing red socks in with a white clothes wash.
Tell high street chains to support high welfare farms!
In the UK, Greggs has made a fortune from their vegan sausage roll, but Pester Pig insists their ethics remain questionable until they source all their pork from high welfare farms.
Vegans and meat eaters alike want to end factory farming, a system that tortures animals, poisons the environment and increases the risk of resistant diseases. Don’t buy from Greggs, or Pester Pig might come for your laundry! Share the video & sign the petition.
Tell Greggs to stop supporting factory farming!
Sign this letter asking the CEOs of Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Morrisons, Greggs and Domino’s to only source high welfare pork.
Sign the petition to all the main UK supermarket COE’s asking them to STOP supporting factory farming and instead to cruelty free systems; sign the petition via this link:
Most High Street Chains Source their Pork from Factory Farms
Three-quarters of the 60 high street supermarkets & food chains surveyed by Farms Not Factories sell pork from factory farms. The vast majority of these don’t offer a single high welfare alternative. Pigs reared in factory farms (an intensive farming system that is permitted under the Red Tractor labelling scheme) have to endure permanent indoor confinement in barren, overcrowded pens for their entire lives. Mother pigs are kept in narrow metal cages so small they cannot even turn around for weeks on end.
RSPCA Assured, Free Range and Organic all have significantly better standards than the Red Tractor labelling scheme and minimum UK & EU standards. Some well known high street chains have already made the switch to one of these high welfare labels. For example, McDonald’s only sell RSPCA Assured pork across their entire menu and the Co-op only sells Outdoor Bred RSPCA Assured pork throughout their entire own-brand fresh pork range. Pigs on high welfare farms, either outdoors or indoors with plenty of straw, are healthy and more contented. They have enough room to roam and express natural instinctive behaviours such as rooting, nesting and playing.
