Do they test on animals?

I was researching into Kraft to see if they really do test on animals. Kraft was acquired in 2003 by Philip Morris(renamed to Altria group) one of the biggest animal testing companies in the world. Some sources say although Kraft didn't test on animals, the money would be going toward Philip Morris to continue testing their other products.

"On January 31, 2007, after months of speculation, the company announced that its 88.1% stake would be spun off to Altria shareholders at the end of March 2007. Kraft is now an independent publicly held company." - Meaning in 2007, Altria decided they didn't want Kraft as a child company and thus gave away all shares to their stakeholders. So now Kraft is financially independent and shares can be bought/traded since there isn't a parent company any more.

Now we have established they aren't financially affiliated with Altria any more, do they at all test on animals? This question i have emailed and hope to receive a response soon.

Interesting. Would love to know as it's the one nagging doubt when I gorge on Vegemite!

Pardon the language but thank F*CK for that. I was only just alerted to the fact that 'Kraft' and 'animal testing' possibly went hand in hand, so I googled it, and wound up here (happens a lot, lol!). Hooray!
