Animals Australia claims a "vicious campaign" by the National Farmers Federation led to its decision to withdraw its shopping bag campaign with Coles.

A furore erupted over Coles' plans to start selling the bags, which had a flying pig logo used by Animals Australia in its push to end factory farming of pigs and hens.

The NFF met with Coles yesterday to express its disgust and farmers across the country threatened to stop supplying Coles.

Animals Australia's Lisa Chalk says a television campaign starting next week will replace the bags.

"This has only just increased our determination to provide those animals with representation. We aren't taking a backward step," she said.

"We are simply changing direction and changing tack and that's why we are putting together a national television advertising campaign to air this week that will show consumers what the National Farmers Federation has fought so hard to hide and that is what happens to animals in these production systems."
