Victory as Van Zellers Remove Foie Gras

Harrogate’s Van Zellers restaurant has been the focal point of a growing campaign surrounding their controversial use of foie gras on the menu.

Campaigners have protested outside and inside the establishment, local newspapers have covered the campaign and what we have been waiting for has proved it was not in vain.

This morning official e-mails have been received from owner Tom Van Zeller confirming the situation:

“I am not prepared to tolerate your behaviour.

So here’s what I am prepared to do. I am going to take Foie Gras off my menu.”

The restaurant’s menu has been adjusted accordingly to reiterate the update.

NARN would like to thank all our supporters who have been involved in the campaign and also send our regards to Mr Van Zeller for finally removing the dish from sale.
