Sometimes I see statistics which really shock me. I thought I’d include some of them here occasionally as I am very generous and like to share my shock with others!
‘855 million chickens are slaughtered for their meat in Britain each year; only 5% of them are free-range’ (The Independent)
I probably found this particular statistic so shocking as I keep chickens myself . I also thought lots more people bought free range chicken these days. I suppose, the vast majority go into processed foods like ready meals, chicken nuggets and fast food outlets. I don’t even want to think about what the statistic for the whole world would be.
