Victory! ARAMARK Dumps Foie Gras

Published by PETA.

After seeing PETA’s heart-wrenching undercover footage of ducks and geese suffering on foie gras farms, food service giant ARAMARK recently agreed to stop distributing foie gras.

To produce this “delicacy of despair,” workers shove metal pipes down birds’ throats and pump them full of fat and grain until their livers painfully swell to up to 10 times their normal size. Foie gras production is so cruel that California and many countries around the world have banned it.

This is a huge victory for ducks and geese. ARAMARK serves more than 2 billion meals every year in 22 countries—meals that will now be foie gras–free.
