The construction of a massive foie gras production facility in China’s Jiangxi Province, has been stopped.
Xu Qingchu, director of investment at the province’s Nanchang Sanghai Economic and Technology Development Area, has confirmed the cancellation, according to the Chinese-language National Business Daily.
China’s Central People’s Broadcasting Station, quoting a local government official, confirmed an end to the planned facility.
The proposed foie gras production facility, set to receive a 106 million yuan investment by Creek Projects, would have been one of the largest in the world, designed to produce 1,000 tonnes of foie gras by slaughtering 800 million ducks and 2 million geese each year.
Foie gras production is widely condemned for being cruel and more than a dozen governments have prohibited this intensive farming practice including the UK, Czech Republic, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Luxembourg, Norway, Poland, the UK, most Austrian provinces, Turkey, Israel and the U.S. state of California.
