Please contact the London Olympic Committee and ask that they remove foie gras from the menu
Please contact the London Olympic Committee appealing to them that Foie Gras does NOT belong on the Great “British” menu for the London Olympics. You may use the sample letter below, but please modify so they receive a variety of statements.
Foie Gras is extremely vicious and NOT British! The production of Foie Gras is banned in the UK, but due to free-trade laws it can be imported. Funding and supporting the Foie Gras industry is NOT British and hypocritical.
You will receive a canned response, but please still protest by sending an email, thank you.

To Whom It Concerns,
I am very disappointed to see that foie-gras has been featured extensively in the series The Great British Menu for the London Olympics.
Foie-gras is the grossly enlarged liver of a duck or goose and is essentially a disease, marketed as a delicacy. Birds raised for this ‘gourmet’ cruelty are force-fed enormous quantities of food through a long metal pipe, three times a day. This process of deliberate and painful overfeeding continues for up to a month by which time the birds’ livers have swelled to ten times their normal size. Every year, around a million ducks die during this period of force-feeding.
Foie-gras is not produced in Britain, as the Government has made it clear that its production would contravene existing animal welfare regulations, but sadly it is still perfectly legal to import it.
I am asking you to follow in Californias latest boycott and ban of Foie Gras; please stop promoting it as being British and take it off the Olympic menu.
Thank you for taking the time to read this urgent appeal.
stop this cruelty before it is
foie gross does not belong
on anyone’s plate!!!
