Bird flu blights foie gras pate production

chinadaily.com.cn | Updated: 2022-12-09 02:37

Foie gras pate might be harder to find and also more expensive this year because of the ravages of bird flu.

Some French farmers said they have had to use the livers of female birds to produce the luxury delicacy after millions of ducks and geese were culled.
Female birds’ liver veins are bigger than males and require more effort to extract, which puts off clients and producers.
