[답변내용] : How are you?
We received your opinion that selling dog meat at restaurants in Korea is a violation.
There is a conflict between compatible social organizations regarding the pros and cons of dog meat in Korea, and the central government and local governments are discussing it in various ways.
However, it is also true that social consensus has not yet been reached, and that one side is not clear.
The recent increase in citizens interest in animal protection has created an atmosphere in which more people are participating than in the past, and it is expected that further progress will be made in the future.
In addition, we will thoroughly manage associated restaurants through careful guidance and inspection to prevent any violation of the Food Sanitation Act, such as internal cleanliness management and personal hygiene control.
Once again, thank you for your valuable opinion and if you have any further questions, please contact us at the contact information below.
