HelloFresh uses coconut milk obtained from monkey labor in Thailand, according to allegations from the People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, which is calling for a boycott of the meal delivery service.

Claims of animals abuse are alleged at 57 operations in nine provinces of Thailand, according to the findings released on Monday.

In a statement to CBS MoneyWatch, HelloFresh said the company receives written assurances from its suppliers that its coconuts are not procured using monkeys.

"HelloFresh strictly condemns any use of monkey labor in its supply chain, and we take a hard position of not procuring from suppliers or selling coconut products which have been found to use monkey labor.

"PETA is calling on everyone, including HelloFresh, to stop buying canned coconut milk from Thailand until moneys are no longer used and abused for profit.".

PETA for years has urged companies and people not to purchase any canned coconut milk products manufactured in Thailand due to its abuse claims.

The group in 2020 obtained such a commitment from U.S. grocery brands including Walgreens and Stop & Shop. »
