LAST UPDATED: 14 May 2020

Pigs are remarkably intelligent, sensitive, affectionate and social animals who suffer tremendously for the sake of profits in the meat industry. Thankfully, with an increasing number of people opting for pig and animal-friendly meals, there is real hope that one day these animals will be universally seen as friends — not food.
