CRUELTY IS WIDESPREAD
It’s not just dogs and cats who are victims of animal cruelty. Billions of animals are suffering horrific lives on factory farms every single day, despite the fact that most people are against animal abuse.
People all over the world accept that animals should be treated with kindness and compassion. However, most people are unaware of the suffering that takes place inside factory farms. The food industry works hard to keep these animals’ stories a secret.
THE MEAT INDUSTRY
The meat industry is responsible for the worst forms of cruelty imaginable. Every packet of meat on the supermarket shelves has a hidden story. Our team of investigators work to bring you the truth.
THE DAIRY INDUSTRY
Few consumers are aware of the cruel cycle of abuse that occurs in the dairy industry. It begins with this simple fact: for a mother to produce milk, she must first give birth to a baby, who is taken away from her.
THE EGG INDUSTRY
Many of the eggs on supermarket shelves or used in ready-made products come from hens who live their entire lives caged on factory farms. They are forced to endure extremely inhumane conditions.
THE FISHING INDUSTRY
Fish are the most consumed animals on the planet. They are also the least protected from cruelty. In fact, there are no laws that regulate their care. Whether they’re raised in intensive farms or caught in the wild, fish are treated with little compassion.
Eliminating cages for hens
Animal Equality’s Corporate Outreach team has helped secure policy commitments from over 60 companies worldwide, meaning more than 20 million hens will be free from the worst suffering imaginable.

India bans the importation of foie gras
In 2014, following Animal Equality investigations, India’s Directorate General of Foreign Trade moved to prohibit the importation of foie gras. India became the first country in the world to implement a nationwide ban on this cruel food item.
