Supermarkets were immoral

'What stirred me up most were the slaughter pig contracts introduced around 1995-1996 which, as a result of pressure from the likes of Tesco, began to include a requirements for loose-housed sows. Their subsequent backsliding as sterling strengthened against the euro was immoral and fully justified our outrage and subsequent actions' — Ian Campbell MBE
