Foie gras given away

French producers have given away 14 tonnes of foie gras to charity after hugely overestimating the demand for the delicacy this Christmas.

After a decade of growth, sales of foie gras stagnated last year but production levels rose, leading to a surplus, according to Les Marches, a French food trade magazine.

Producers gave 350,000 pots to 11 charities.
