Below is the response we sent to Royal Canin on August 25, 2017:
Thank you for your response regarding the dog and cat meat trade in North Jeolla Province, South Korea. We are glad to hear that Royal Canin is opposed to animal cruelty, including the suffering of animals in the dog and cat meat trade.
If it is true that your company deeply cares about the health and well-being of cats and dogs; we urge you to put your words into action by contacting North Jeolla Province, with whom you’ve signed a memorandum of understanding, and ask that they put a stop to the dog and cat meat trade. With the significant investment you are making in North Jeolla Province, you have the attention of people in power who can make a difference. You can help put an end to the horrific cruelty and immense suffering of millions of dogs each year. This would truly help make the world a better place for pets.
The favor of your reply is requested.
