Tell Tesco to stop selling cruel veal

The face of veal (sadly I could have used a picture of a calf like this one in a veal crate).

Veal is one of the cruellest foods there is. It's the meat of baby cows, taken away from their mothers and shoved into lonely crates where they live out their sad lives without ever feeling the air on their faces.
So I was sad to hear that Tesco are not only selling it, they are selling imported veal when they could be selling rose veal, which although cruel gives calves better environments to stay in.
That's why I signed this petition calling on Tesco to sell rose veal instead of imported veal from Germany where the poor calves are treated much worse.
I'd rather they didn't sell veal as this is a meat that belongs in the Dark Ages, but if they’re going to sell it I’d rather have less cruelty involved.
Tesco have two Twitter accounts @UKTesco and @uktescooffers
They also have a Facebook page
Why not drop them a tweet or leave a comment to ask they stop selling this imported veal?
Remember, being polite is more likely to get your point across than being shouty:)

You could for instance say that you won't shop there whilst they continue to sell that veal and you'll tell other people why.

UPDATE - I received he following Tweet from Tesco on July 5th, 2012

Note - As of September 24th, 2012 Tesco was still selling veal.


  1. Thanks for this post. I have just signed the petition and have shared it on Twitter. Lets hope it gets more signatures!

  2. Thanks, Alex. I can't believe anyone would eat veal. It's so cruel.
