Foie Gras Given Away Due to Lack of Sales
An Animal Rights Article from

January 2010

French producers have given away 14 tons of foie gras to charity after hugely overestimating the demand for the delicacy this Christmas.

After a decade of growth, sales of foie gras stagnated last year but production levels rose, leading to a surplus, according to Les Marches, a French food trade magazine.

Producers gave 350,000 pots to 11 charities.
