Overfed & Exploited

We investigate the brutal foie gras industry

Although we’ve got a long way to go, historically, the UK is known to have better animal welfare than the rest of Europe. Britain was the first country to introduce an animal welfare law, as well as numerous legislations that protect animals in our country. As a result of these regulations, the production of foie gras in the UK is banned, yet, the importing of it into the country is still legal.

Each year, the UK imports an estimated 180-200 tonnes of foie gras from mainland Europe, and whilst this makes us the smallest consumer market out of 10 importing countries (France being the largest, at around 14,000 tonnes a year), it still means that the UK contributes to this cruel industry.

About Vegan Life

Welcome to our jam-packed February issue. We’ve been feeling the love here at Vegan Life HQ and, instead of resisting, we’re embracing that warm and fuzzy feeling. We’ve rounded up some of the best places to take a date this Valentine’s Day, the ultimate vegan-friendly gifts, and the most delicious meals to prepare for your significant other. It is tradition to send anonymous cards to people you like, but why not switch things up and use those few pounds to show your love for the animals by making a donation to a sanctuary instead? I had a wonderful love story delivered to my inbox this month — the tale of how a scrappy little sheep escaped slaughter, and the love of a group of school children led him to safety and finding his forever home. Find out all about Reg. I’m sure I’ve seen in a film someone plaster their declaration of love on a billboard — a grand gesture sure to gain some serious attention. This month, we’ve been looking at the world of pro-vegan advertising and why it causes so much controversy. The backbone of veganism is love and compassion, so why do some companies refuse to do business with vegan advertisers?. We’re getting really excited about Vegan Life Live coming up on March 9th-10th and can’t wait to see you all there. What better place to share the love than a venue of like-minded people enjoying great conversation and sensational food? Make sure you check out our preview. Have a great month,
