North American Food Distributing Co. Drops Chaokoh

After hearing from PETA, Asian food distributor North American Food Distributing Co. (NAFDC)—which is based in Sacramento, California—cut ties with Chaokoh, a company implicated in using forced monkey labor to pick coconuts. NAFDC is an importer and wholesale distributor of Asian food products for businesses and restaurants, and it has affiliated companies in Tokyo and the U.S. It joins the growing list of companies rejecting coconut products linked to forced monkey labor in Thailand. Please urge 99 Ranch Market to follow suit.
