Pro-vegan table wraps have been placed in universities across the UK, showing the realities of chicken farming to hundreds of thousands of students.

The wraps, which will remain on tables for a month, are at Sheffield University, Reading University, Hertfordshire University, Sheffield Hallam University, Kingston University, and Cranfield University.

The initiative was put in place by Animal Justice Project (AJP) in partnership with Animal Save Movement. AJP will be visiting campuses to talk to students about its recent undercover investigations at RSPCA-assured ‘free-range’ chicken farms.

Plant-based food system

“[We’ve recently unwrapped] our innovative Table Wraps in student unions across the country,” Claire Palmer, founder of Animal Justice Project, said.

“We have seen first-hand the conversations being sparked by the wraps whilst students are eating their lunches and many students we’ve spoken to have been shocked at the reality for so-called ‘free-range’ birds.

“Animal Justice Project is against all animal agriculture and supporting initiatives with other groups to promote a plant-based food system here in the UK.”
