Smithfield Foods is the largest “pork” producer in the United States, slaughtering one fourth of all the pigs killed for food in the US. It is owned by the Chinese company WH Group, which is the largest "pork" producer in the entire world.
The filthy, crowded environment at Smithfield's farms leads to rampant disease and often to death.
Direct Action Everywhere activists spent nearly a year investigating a North Carolina Smithfield pig farm and this is what they found.
Powerful corporations are abusing animals, spreading antibiotic resistance, and threatening all life on the planet. We need to take action to expose their crimes and to stop this dangerous cycle from spinning out of control. Lauri’s story of rescue and recovery has the power to change the world, but we need your help to continue exposing the truth until every animal like her is safe and free.
