Suspension of the development of a foie gras operation in Jiangxi province, China

An announcement on their website states:

The Directors of Creek Project Investments PLC, responding to concerns from the public about the development of an extensive Foie Gras operation in Mainland China, today announced a suspension of the present ‘Foie Gras’ operations, until the completion of a full review. The Directors have called for the review to include input from animal welfare and environmental experts to address any issues which may or may not exist. The results of the review will be published on the Company’s web site when completed, which is expected to be within the next two months.

AFA supported a campaign led by Compassion in World Farming and the Humane Society International against the development of a foie gras factory in China.

The following information is reproduced from the Compassion in World Farming website:

A British company has been exposed by Compassion in World Farming and the Humane Society International for funding the development of a huge foie gras factory farm.

Despite the fact that foie gras production has been banned in much of Europe, including the UK, it is reported that Creek Projects Investments PLC has invested millions of pounds to build what will become the largest foie gras facility in China. According to its website, 15 million geese are expected to be delivered over the next five years.

The production of foie gras involves force feeding ducks and geese enormous quantities of grain usually using a rigid metal tube forced down their throat, so that their liver becomes excessively fatty and expands to an unnatural size.
