In 2013, a PETA investigator visited Palmex, Inc. ("Palmex"), a foie gras factory farm outside Montréal. Palmex is also part of Rougié, the self-proclaimed "world's #1 producer of foie gras."PETA's investigation found that Palmex condemns gentle ducks to spend the last few weeks before they are slaughtered inside barren metal cages that are not much bigger than their own bodies.
The ducks cannot spread a single wing or take even two steps in any direction.They are denied access to water to bathe and swim in. They are not allowed to live like ducks.
In the foie gras industry, pipes are shoved down the birds' throats, and up to 4 pounds of grain and fat are pumped into their stomachs two or three times a day.

I, the undersigned, hereby request that you immediately stop offering foie gras to your customers. PETA's investigation of Palmex, Inc. ("Palmex"), a factory farm outside Montréal, found that Palmex condemns gentle ducks to spend the last few weeks before they are slaughtered in barren metal cages that are not much bigger than their own bodies. The ducks are denied all that is natural and important to them and cannot spread a single wing or take even two steps in any direction. Palmex is part of Rougié, whose foie gras you sell.I ask that you help end this cruelty and end your sales of foie gras. Thank you for your time and consideration.
