"The LVMH group and its suppliers ceased all trading in 2014 with the farms named by Peta," LVMH said on Friday, adding that it sources its crocodile skins from other Asian suppliers. Peta (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) said on Thursday it had bought one share in LVMH to enable it to put pressure on the French company to stop selling products made with exotic animal skins.
