Liverpool ditch sponsorship after animal cruelty allegations

Liverpool FC have decided to not renew terms with Chaokoh after allegations of animal cruelty were made against the Thai firm.

The coconut water brand have come under fierce criticism from PETA after an undercover investigation.

The animal rights organisation claim to have found evidence of ‘terrified monkeys’ forced to pick coconuts for production.

This information comes from the Liverpool Echo as a host of UK supermarkets have removed Chaokoh’s products from their shelves.

PETA say their investigators visited eight farms across Thailand and found the illegally captured monkeys being put to work.

The same Echo report clarifies these findings led directly to Liverpool’s cancellation of the deal, and the Premier League champions have been commended for their actions.

“PETA thanks Liverpool FC for its decision to end its association with Chaokoh and calls on the Thai government to take meaningful steps towards ending the vile practice of using monkeys to harvest coconuts,” said PETA Senior Corporate Liaison, Dr Carys Bennett.
