To two supermarket chains in Hawaii for agreeing to no longer purchase pork products from pigs sent by live transport from the mainland.
According to a news report, “Two supermarket chains in Hawaii – Foodland Super Markets, Ltd. And Times Supermarkets – have agreed to no longer purchase pork products from pigs transported live from the mainland U.S. to Hawaii for slaughter, citing animal welfare reasons for their change.”
The inherent stress on these animals shipped across seas is inestimable. They are forced to endure cramped, overcrowded, and unsanitary conditions; and many animals suffer stress-related illnesses along with horrific injuries and diseases. Many die in the process of the transport.
NHES, of course, promotes a vegan/vegetarian diet in order to reduce the amount of animal suffering on factory farms and in slaughterhouses.
Take Action: Hawaii residents, thank the owners of these markets for their awareness that farmed animals suffer when transported across the seas. In addition, let them know that you want to see more plant-based products on their shelves.
