HelloFresh Halts Use of Coconut Milk From Thailand Due to Forced Monkey Labor Claims

In January, Target became the latest major retailer, joining Costco and Walmart, to specifically ban Chaokoh coconut milk in light of an investigation from PETAís Asia division, which found that monkeys were being forced to work.

PETA allegedly found instances of abuse at dozens of coconut retrieval operations throughout several provinces in Thailand. These companies that have become reliant on monkeys to harvest coconuts will force them to climb tall trees for hours, and separate young monkeys from their families to support production.
