"Child labor, unethical promotion, manipulating uneducated mothers, pollution, price fixing and mislabeling – those are not words you want to see associated with your company. Nestle is the world’s largest foodstuff company, and it has a history that would make even hardcore industrialists shiver. We’re gonna look at why Nestle has such a bad reputation and whether or not it deserves it."
Tom, I am disgusted with what Nestle did to parents and babies in poor countries as well. It has been several years since I bought any brand associated with Nestle.
For those who do not know the story of Nestle, the company aggressively marketed Nestle baby formula in poor, underdeveloped countries where there was too often a lack of drinkable water. Once the babies learned to nurse from a bottle and once the mothers' milk dried up, the fomula was no long available at no cost.
"It was in 1977 that campaigners first called for a boycott of Nestlé because of its aggressive marketing of formula milk in the developing world. Thirty years on, have Nestlé and the other baby-milk firms cleaned up their act? Joanna Moorhead travels to Bangladesh to find out."
"in 1988 the International Baby Food Action Network (Ibfan) alleged that baby-milk companies were flooding health facilities in the developing world with free and low-cost supplies,"
"In 2014, Nestlé practices exposed in new Breaking the Rules, Stretching the Rules 2014 monitoring report."
In 2017 support the "Nestlé boycott
Joan, however despicable Nestle's methods, is free or low-cost birth control available in those countries?
There is a limit to how many people the earth can carry.
I know, and we have discussed this in other posts. As has been stated by me and others, poor people in developing nations need no Bibles, Qurans, or prayers, they need education, family planning, and riddance of demagogues and dictators. We, in the developed nations, need education as badly as developing nations, only we pretend we are educated and free.
