THE PIG ISSUE ENDING CUTS & CRATES The majority of Europe’s 250 million pigs annually slaughtered for pigmeat are farmed in horrendous and often illegal conditions. Compassion in World Farming wants an end to intensive rearing practices and for all pigs to be treated with compassion and respect. Despite existing EU laws to protect pig welfare, pregnant sows are often confined in barren cages or crates, stressed and unable to carry out natural behaviour. Piglets are often housed in overcrowded, barren pens and can suffer painful mutilations such as tooth clipping, tail docking and castration. Unfortunately, there is no legal requirement across the EU to state method of production on pork products. However, some UK supermarkets are beginning to provide pigmeat labels for consumers, such as “free-range”, “outdoor bred and reared” and “straw bedding provided” all of which provide higher welfare potential. Turn overleaf for a guide to UK pork labels.
