DID YOU KNOW?
Live transport causes suffering on a massive scale: more than 1,000,000,000 animals are transported every single week, many on unnecessary and long journeys.

Every week, hundreds of millions of farm animals endure journeys lasting hours, days, weeks or months, in cramped conditions on their way to slaughter.
They experience stress and exhaustion, rough handling, hunger and thirst, extreme temperatures and unsanitary conditions as they are transported live across the world. As a result, the animals suffer horrific injuries, diseases are spread and many die before reaching their destination.
We already have the technology to transport fresh chilled and frozen meat and the science to prove the welfare benefits of local, humane slaughter. For these reasons, long distance transport is not only cruel, it is unnecessary.
