Many monkeys utilized in Thailand’s coconut-picking business are kidnapped from their forest houses as infants. Handlers put metallic collars and leashes on them and generally take away their canine enamel to allow them to’t defend themselves. PETA Asia’s investigative footage reveals trainers putting them, dangling them by their necks, and whipping them. As a result of the business and the Thai authorities lie about and deceive shoppers about their systemic reliance on monkey labor, it’s unimaginable to ensure that any coconut milk from Thailand is cruelty-free. One in every of Entire Meals’ coconut milk suppliers was implicated in PETA Asia’s newest investigation into the commerce, however the firm didn’t act after PETA offered it with this info.

“Entire Meals is aware of that Thailand’s compelled monkey labor is a damnable enterprise, but it’s profiting off these struggling primates by acquiring coconut milk from that nation,” says PETA Govt Vice President Tracy Reiman. “PETA is looking on Entire Meals to take a complete lot of cruelty off its cabinets by promoting canned coconut milk solely from nations like India, Indonesia, and the Philippines, the place monkey labor isn’t used.”

PETA—whose motto reads, partly, that “animals aren’t ours to abuse in any approach”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview.
