Tokyo – “When will Ajinomoto observe the worldwide development and ban all animal assessments that aren’t explicitly required by legislation?” If chosen to attend the corporate’s annual assembly tomorrow, that’s the query PETA Asia’s Laila Imai—performing as a shareholder consultant—would have  requested executives of conglomerate Ajinomoto Co. Inc., the multinational proprietor of Hondashi, Consommé, and Knorr.  However PETA wasn’t among the many shareholders chosen in order shareholders and board members enter the constructing, a gaggle of PETA Asia members can be ready, blindfolded and holding indicators that learn, “Ajinomoto: Don’t Be Blind to Animal Cruelty.”

When:    Thursday, June 23, 9:00 a.m.–10:00 p.m.

The place:    Ajinomoto Group Takanawa Coaching Middle, 3-13-65 Takanawa, Minato-ku, Tokyo

The inventory in Ajinomoto was bought in 2020 to induce shareholders to finish the corporate’s experiments on animals. PETA has uncovered that because the Nineteen Fifties, Ajinomoto experimenters have minimize open canines’ stomachs, inserted tubes into them, starved the animals, fed them MSG, taken their abdomen fluid, and injected them with medication, purportedly to ascertain well being claims for advertising and marketing the corporate’s meals merchandise and substances. A few of Ajinomoto’s different assessments have concerned inserting tubes into day-old piglets’ arteries and ravenous them, electroshocking rats, and compelling mice to battle one another. These assessments are neither related to human well being nor required by legislation.

“It’s indefensible to torment animals in painful and invasive experiments, all to market meals and drinks to people,” says PETA Vice President Shalin Gala. “PETA is asking on Ajinomoto to affix dozens of different international meals giants which have ended animal assessments and swap to efficient, moral, economical, non-animal analysis.”

As PETA notes within the query, Ajinomoto’s newly launched animal-testing coverage permits for the continuation of almost all the identical assessments that it’s been conducting and funding for many years. The corporate is violating its personal “3R” coverage to interchange, scale back, and refine using animals in experiments by persevering with to greenlight these assessments whereas animal-free analysis strategies for these functions are available.

PETA—whose motto reads, partly, that “animals usually are not ours to experiment on”—opposes speciesism, a human-supremacist worldview. For extra data on PETA’s investigative newsgathering and reporting, please go to or observe the group on Twitter, Fb, or Instagram.
