You didn't know, did you?
Many people are shocked to learn that animal cruelty laws permit the cruel treatment of animals raised and killed for food. For decades, animal protection groups have sought to have these laws changed, without success. Production and profit have been prioritised by governments, and the suffering of these animals has been ignored. All of the practices listed below are routine and legal in Australia today.
What can I do to help?
The demand for ever-cheaper meat, milk and eggs has led to systems of farming that deny animals their most basic needs and desires. But consumers were never told of the high price animals pay to meet this demand. Every time you choose a plant-based meal over an animal-based one you are helping to transform our food system, and along with it, the lives of animals. And enjoying more plant-based food has never been easier - or more delicious! See for yourself by ordering a free Veg Starter Guide today.
