A petition calling on the UK Government to make slaughterhouse images mandatory on meat packaging will end on January 5.

If the petition reaches 10,000 signatures, the Government will respond to it. If it reaches 100,000 signatures, it will be considered for debate in Parliament.

Meat packaging

“Packets of cigarettes after having adopted grotesque images of the effects of smoking in 2008 have reduced the number of smokers significantly in the UK,” says the petition, which was started by Harvey Nriapia.

“I am calling on the Government to adopt a similar scheme with meat packaging in order to warn people about what they are eating.

“Pictures would be stark to illustrate the appalling conditions that animals live in; the effects on health of meat-eating; and the environmental toll that raising animals for meat has.”
