The company joins a growing list of businesses that have worked with PETA to swear off health studies on animals, including Yakult Honsha, House Foods, Kikkoman, Barilla, ITO EN, Ltd., Coca-Cola, Lipton, POM Wonderful, Welch’s, and Ocean Spray.

We’ll continue working to help other food and beverage brands make the same commitment and to replace government-mandated experiments on animals with advanced humane science.
