About Foie GrasThe InvestigationPhoto GalleryVideo GalleryPress RoomHow to HelpMarketplace The Truth about Foie Gras

Foie gras: gourmet cruelty is a coalition dedicated to exposing the cruelty of the foie gras industry. Just two companies are responsible for the barbaric practice of foie gras production in the United States—Hudson Valley Foie Gras in New York and Sonoma Foie Gras in California.

Over the course of many months, the coalition conducted a nationwide investigation into the domestic foie gras industry. uncovered filthy, crowded conditions and documented an industry standard of disregard for the pain and suffering inherent to foie gras production.

Investigators took undercover footage of the immensely traumatic forced-feeding process, and rescued fifteen of these long-suffering ducks.

Delicacy of Despair, an undercover documentary about our investigation and rescue is now available on VHS and DVD through this website.
