Animal factsheets

Our factsheets are here to inform you.

Many consumers are unaware of how their food is produced.

We believe that there is a disconnect between the public perception of animals and the food on their plates. The UK is a nation of animal lovers, yet hundreds of thousands of animals in this country are exposed to suffering on a daily basis.

That’s why we’ve produced a series of factsheets that aim to inform you about how different animals are reared for meat and other animal products. We also take a look at how these animals behave naturally in the wild, their complex social structures and levels of intelligence.

These factsheets will be continuously updated in line with changing rules and regulations.
