Worldwide progress against foie gras
In the United States, the city of New York and the state of California have both banned the sale of foie gras. We’re continuing to target major cities and work state by state as we fight for a nationwide ban.
Progress is possible as more than a dozen countries have already banned foie gras. Here’s what our work has achieved so far:
- India became the first country in the world to implement a nationwide ban on the import of foie gras in 2014. This was a direct result of our investigations in Europe.
- After our successful two year campaign, one of Italy’s largest stores, COOP, ended the sale of foie gras.
- In the United Kingdom where the production of foie gras is already banned, we are petitioning the government for a definitive ban on importation and have obtained 250,000 signatures.
