Going the Whole Hog Campaign Update

The South African Pork Producers’ Organisation (SAPPO) claims that the Going the Whole Hog Campaign is misleading consumers but the GTWH Campaign co-ordinator, Mark Fox says the campaign is highlighting concerns in the pig industry that consumers want and need to know about.  Mark Fox also says that they welcome an open debate with SAPPO and request transparency through consumer access to SAPPO’s farms. Caroline Hurry noted that Going the Whole Hog Campaign “squares up to the horrors of pig farming in South Africa despite SAPPO’s attempts to silence them.”

Mercy For Animals Canada Hog Victory

They did it! In December 2012 the release of their shocking undercover viral video, showing the terrible living conditions of pregnant sows confined for their entire lives in tiny gestation crates as well as a multitude of other violent abuses at a Manitoba pig farm, stunned Canadians across the country. The video inspired almost 50,000 people on Change.org to sign their petition and together they scored one of the biggest animal welfare victories ever in Canada. The Retail Council of Canada announced that all four retailers targeted in this petition (Loblaws/Superstore, Walmart Canada, Sobey’s and Metro) as well as four additional large Canadian retailers have agreed to phase out inherently cruel gestation crates from their pork supply chains in favor of “alternative housing practices.”
