Humane Milk Myth Ads Cleared By Standards Body
Dairy farmers have been arguing that an advert by EDEN Farmed Animal Sanctuary stating that ‘humane milk is a myth’ is inaccurate. The Advertising Standards Authority (ASA) however, have cleared it in a ruling that will be published today.
Although the language used to express the claims was emotional and hard-hitting, we understood it was the case that calves were generally separated from their mothers very soon after birth, and we therefore concluded that the ad was unlikely to materially mislead readers. – ASA
This is a ‘landmark’ ruling and yet another sign that the times are changing, and with this, the attitudes of some of the top influencers!
