Breaking! Maker Of Top Ramen Among 4 More High-Profile Companies To End Cruel & Unnecessary Testing On Animals
Four major food and beverage companies with annual sales of more than $27 billion have enacted new policies banning horrific and pointless experiments on animals.
The life-saving decision of the following companies is now sparing countless mice and rats from painful experiments:
Nissin Foods Holdings—multibillion-dollar owner of Top Ramen, the largest instant-ramen brand with vegetarian flavors in national distribution in the U.S.
Satake Corporation—major food-processing company and owner of Magic Rice and Magic Pasta brands
Suntory Holdings—multibillion-dollar owner of the Jim Beam and Maker’s Mark brands and joint venture partner with PepsiCo
Toyo Suisan Kaisha—multibillion-dollar owner of Maruchan, the largest North American producer of instant ramen noodles
“These major companies did the right thing in ditching cruel and wasteful animal experiments,” PETA Vice President Shalin Gala said in a statement. “PETA is calling on other industry leaders to join this growing trend and switch to modern, non-animal research methods that provide human-relevant results and don’t cause animals suffering.”
According to PETA, which announced the news following months of discussions with the companies, tests previously conducted or funded by these four organizations included force-feeding mice and rats’ ingredients ranging from yeast to instant ramen noodles, starving them for up to 18 hours, restraining them in tubes, forcing them to run on treadmills and jump from hot plates, and electrocuting them, after which the animals’ necks were broken and their bodies were dissected.
May this be another positive step forward towards ending animal testing completely!
