What Do These Animals Endure?
Before Chocolatier Barry Callebaut decided to officially close all facilities smeared in animal cruelty, PETA published a series of reports from 2007 to 2019. The reports included several tests the company had conducted on animals. PETA has always been fighting the battle against using animals for testing. In the testing process, animals are prodded, cut open, tortured, and ultimately killed. All in the belief that the products they are manufacturing would hold up to the global standard of excellence.
It is quite important that Barry Callebaut has taken a progressive decision. It is a noble cause, and one worth fighting for as voiceless animals will be spared a cruel fate. They also play a huge role in motivating other companies to follow suit.
