Just got involved in a mini-flame-war on a foodie community on LJ. Some of the members were propagating a Nestle viral marketing thing, and I just wasn't going to let that go.
We don't do Nestle. 4000 babies die every day because of unsafe bottle feeding, and Nestle's marketing practices, in contravention of the World Health Assembly's 1981 International Code of Marketing of Breastmilk Substitutes, contribute to that.
Which is why they're among the top most boycotted brands in the world, and definitely the top one in the UK. Every so often people say to me, Surely that's over now? and I point them here: http://www.babymilkaction.org/pages/campaign.html and tell them about current marketing activities in China, and Slovakia.
If you already boycott Nestle by not buying Nescafe and some of their cereals, please also bear in mind that they are part-owners and/or profit from a range of cosmetic companies including
L'Oreal (which of course now owns Body Shop)
