Morrisons ignores calls to drop failing farm

Video Footage – **WARNING** – Animals Suffering.

Last month we released footage exposing animal welfare and public health violations on an East Yorkshire pig farm that supplies Morrisons supermarket.

We sent our footage to the company immediately and demanded that it drops the farm – but we have not received any response.

During two visits to Poplar Farm this autumn our investigators found pigs with open, bleeding wounds on their ears; severely lame pigs left in a pen with other pigs; pregnant pigs kept in barren, concrete pens without any enrichment and severely scarred pigs who appeared to be victims of aggression caused by the harsh living conditions. 

In violation of legislation governing disposal of dead animals – intended to minimise the public health risk associated with diseased animals – two dead pigs were left out in the open yard overnight. One had clearly been shot in the head. 


We are calling on Morrisons, and all supermarkets, to adopt a zero-tolerance policy on animal welfare breaches. Farms that leave injured and ill animals to suffer should be dropped immediately by retailers!


Please contact Morrisons’ CEO David Potts at

and urge him to drop Poplar Farm immediately. You can also share the above video on Twitter and tag @Morrisons, demanding it takes action.



And if you haven’t yet signed our petition demanding action for all of Britain’s pigs please take a moment to sign & share that too!

Thank you for giving farmed animals a voice.

Hit Morrisons where it financially hurts – especially at Christmas;

Boycott ALL stores.
