Whaling: Food groups pull support for whaling industry

This news is a couple of days old but still worth posting. reports that five major food companies have hit the Japanese whaling industry by pulling support from Kyodo Senpaku - the company that runs most of the country's whaling ships. Nissui, Gortons, Sealord and Bluewater Seafoods have all divested their one-third share in the company.

Greenpeace said that the result showed the power of consumers in globalised markets.

Is it just me, but are only four companies named?
