“A representation of hell” is how vet, Amir Kashiv, described footage secured inside the French foie-gras farm that supplied celebrity chef, Heston Blumenthal. It is the worst foie-gras footage we have ever seen.
After being seriously threatened by lawsuits from the farm who we presume were desperate for the footage to not reach the public, they were finally shamed in the Daily Mirror newspaper recently. Heston publically declared he was dropping that producer and has since gone on to drop foie-gras from the menu at his flagship restaurant The Fat Duck.
This is a victory but we need your help to stop Heston selling any foie-gras, as he still has it on the menu at his other eateries. Tell him all production is the same – torture.
We are determined that this celebrity chef will not simply swap one supplier for another – and we are asking for your help in achieving this.

Crammed into tiny cages, caked in filth, riddled with sores and in agony from broken beaks and wings, these are the ducks used to make foie gras at Gordon Ramsay’s restaurants.
Campaigners last night branded the horrific conditions the “worst ever seen” after being shown the pictures of shocking cruelty at plants that supply the celebrity chef with the posh dish.
Ducks lie dead and dying, many have painful eye injuries and abscesses and all are force-fed grain through a tube to make their livers 10 times the normal size during a two-week ordeal in a windowless shed before they are slaughtered.
In one pitiful scene, an exhausted and clearly distressed bird can be seen on its side with its tongue hanging from its beak.
Campaigners described the conditions and treatment of the ducks as “torture”.
Experienced vet Amir Kashiv called the film footage a “representation of hell”.
