Make a difference for people, pigs and the planet
In animal factories pigs are confined in overcrowded, stressful conditions often on bare concrete.
To keep them alive, pigs in animal factories are routinely given antibiotics, passing on antibiotic resistant diseases like E. coli to humans.
Animal factories cut costs by ignoring regulations, which destroys farm livelihoods and rural communities.
Animal factories gobble energy, land and water. Large swathes of rainforest are being cleared to plant GM soy for pig feed.
Democratic, localised control of food is being eroded by an intentional economic stranglehold of global food markets by large agribusiness and biotech corporations.

Watch Pig Business the film
The Pig Business films investigate the rise of factory pig farming. This farming system threatens human health through dangerous overuse of antibiotics, wrecks rural economies and communities, pollutes the environment and abuses animals. The resulting profits line the pockets of just a handful of massive corporations and their powerful lobbyists, putting local farmers out of business.
