An Associated Press investigation released today has found that Thai Union, owner of John West in the UK, has again been connected to forced labour, child labour and horrific working conditions in Thailand. The investigation followed trucks transporting prawns from the Gig Peeling Factory to major Thai exporting companies, and then tracked where the product ended up globally.

The investigation found that migrants, including children, were forced to work for little or no pay peeling prawns which ended up in the US, Europe, and Asia.
