Stick It to Chaokoh With Stickers and Help End Forced Monkey Labor

In 2019, PETA Asia investigators visited eight farms on which monkeys were forced to pick coconuts—including those for Thailand’s major coconut milk producer, Chaokoh. A subsequent PETA Asia investigation conducted in 2020 found monkeys still being used on many farms.

Many monkeys, typically pig-tailed macaques, are illegally abducted from their families and homes when they’re just babies. They’re fitted with rigid metal collars and kept chained or tethered for extended periods. When forced to harvest coconuts, monkeys are denied the freedom to move around, socialize with others, or do anything else meaningful to them. These intelligent primates slowly lose their minds. Driven to desperation, they pace and circle endlessly on the barren, trash-strewn patches of dirt where they’re chained.

Thousands of stores worldwide—including chains Costco, Target, Albertsons, Safeway, Walgreens, and Wegmans—have already made the kind and ethical decision not to sell Chaokoh products. But despite having been alerted by PETA in December 2019 to the ugly origins of Chaokoh canned coconut milk, these major grocery chains continue to sell coconut products obtained via forced monkey labor:

  • Publix
  • Jewel-Osco
  • Woodman’s Market
  • Tony’s Fresh Market
  • Walmart

Use these peel-off stickers in legal ways to let others know that purchasing Chaokoh canned coconut products supports forced monkey labor and to urge them to leave these products on the store shelf:

“Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights?” READ MORE
