Cruelty Free International is renewing its call for progress in Korea regarding the use of animals to test cosmetics, where the largest cosmetic companies have ended animal testing and political pressure for change is mounting. The call to the Korea government follows cosmetics animal testing bans in the European Union, India and Israel and China’s recent announcement of acceptance of non-animal testing from June 2014.
Cruelty Free International Director of Policy, Dr Nick Palmer, starts a four-day visit with the Ministry of Agriculture, Food and Rural Affairs (MAFRA), advisers to key politicians, our partners, the Korean Animal Welfare Association, and discussions with leading companies.
The organization’s Korea Campaign Manager, Hyung Ju Lee, says, “We are very hopeful of real progress and encouraged by the wide range of official bodies and companies talking with us during this week’s program.”
