Why Happy Foie Gras?

Cruelty to animals by stuffing ducks and geese

StopfgänseThe term foie gras is French and means fatty liver. Foie gras is a luxurious food made from the liver of ducks and geese. The special thing that also makes up the finely nutty and delicately creamy taste is the very high fat content of the liver. This extraordinary fat content is achieved by force feeding the animals with approx. 0.8 - 1.0 kg of feed per day for a period of 12 - 21 days. This corresponds to about 14 kg pasta per day for an average person. As with overweight people, this results in an enlarged, sick fatty liver.
The Foie Gras is available as raw, pure liver variant and as processed Bloc variant.

By the stuffing the animals are tormented mechanically and by the massive overweight in the consequence among other things also metabolically sick.

Due to this ethical problem the stuffing of the animals and/or the Foie Gras stands massively in the criticism, not only of animal protectors. Many countries have already banned the stuffing and partly also the distribution of the products. In many restaurants, the products are no longer used, despite availability, due to ethical problems.
Despite the morally difficult situation, far more than 20,000 tons of foie gras are still produced worldwide. This shows the unique taste of the foie gras and the fact that there is still such a high demand.

Happy Foie Gras

Gesunde, glückliche GansWith our Happy Foie Gras, we have developed the first ethically impeccable and organic certified alternative that is indistinguishable in taste from conventional Bloc Foie Gras. Happy Foie Gras is produced in a patented process*, in which the liver of healthy animals is subsequently greased.
Hence Happy Foie Gras is …
  • Equivalent taste
    This is shown by various blind tastings and feedback from many star chefs who can now offer foie gras in their restaurants again with Happy Foie Gras.
  • Healthier
    Only certified organic ingredients are used. This is not possible with foie gras due to the force feeding. The animals were not under stress during rearing. As a result, there are significantly fewer stress hormones than in conventional foie gras.
  • Ethically impeccable
    No force feeding, instead a certified organic breeding of the animals, whose liver we process for the Happy Foie Gras.

This makes our Happy Foie Gras a great new alternative for connoisseurs who also like to listen to their conscience.
