The Pig Idea: new campaign on feeding pigs waste

This campaign has been launched to re-introduce the feeding of waste to pigs. It hopes to encourage farmers about the benefits of feeding pigs surplus food and calls for a change in European law so farmers can return to feeding pigs waste in the long term.

Specifically its goals are to: 

  • Liberate food supplies
  • Lower feed costs for pig farmers
  • Reduce economic and environmental costs of disposing of food waste
  • Protect landscapes rich in biodiversity, such as the precious Amazon Rainforest
  • Create jobs and revenue in the new eco-feed industry

You can find out more at the initiative’s website here or for more coverage see an article in Farmers Guardian here or from ThinkEatSave here
