So the "country" is well known for eating dog meat, but you have no actual evidence of the people you work with eating dogs?
And you think your company shouldn't extend their contract with this company because of this.
Or, is this simply something that should be left out of the workplace?
Absolutely, this has zero business being in the workplace.
This is basically the same as someone who is anti-gun saying that they don't want their company to work with and American firm since America is well known for people having guns.
I'm no fan of the idea personally (I like dogs, I don't have dogs myself but enjoy spending time with the dogs of friends and family) but to give some perspective on the notion of your company contracting with this East Asian company..
It is legal to eat dog meat in 43 states in the US - only California, Georgia, Hawaii, Michigan, New Jersey, New York, and Virginia outlaw the practice so if you were to truly take a "stand" regarding this I suggest you ensure that you don't have any dealings with any American company based in one of the above states.
Or any of the following countries:
- Democratic Republic of Congo
- North Korea
- South Korea
- New Zealand
In all these countries, dogs are eaten or are legal to be eaten.
Given China's status as the highest consumer of dogs as food in the world (20 million annually) I suggest paying careful attention to where your products come from - after all a substantial amount of goods in the UK are manufactured in China and the odds are pretty good that many of those factory workers eat dog at some point in their lives.
Do you have a Samsung phone or Apple iPhone? Congratulations! You're supporting the eating of dogs.
3 of the top 5 exporters of electronic components in the world are consumers of dog meat, so, the chances are pretty good that at least part of the device you used to post this question was produced in a country where eating dog meat is legal and accepted. (Although kudos to Taiwan and Hong Kong where it's been banned!)
