Groupon Hong Kong CEO: No more promotion involving shark’s fin
[Hong Kong, Jun 26, 2011] The Chief Executive Officer of Groupon Hong Kong (previously operated as uBuyiBuy.com), Mr. Danny Yeung, replied to complaints from environmentalists regarding Groupon HK’s recent shark fin promotion. In the letter, Mr. Yeung promised that in the future they will restrict featuring any deals that involve shark’s fin. As for the deal that has already been purchased by customers (see http://bit.ly/lLzRsO), he said they have contacted the merchant Crystal Harbour Restaurant and will allow customers to opt for bird’s nest soup in replacement of shark fin soup.
Mr. Yeung also said Groupon Hong Kong values and respects animal rights and is committed to supporting the conservation of endangered species.
Environmentalists welcome the change of mind of Groupon Hong Kong. Hong Kong Shark Foundation posted a news about the development on their Facebook pages and immediately received more than 40 “Likes”.
