Ok, Ok, I know that this section isn't really about my opinions on the company, but I couldn't find anywhere else to put it. Well, where do I start? This whole Nestle thing has been going on for about 20 years now, and to be honest, I'm pretty fed up with it. For those of you who don't know what I'm talking about, let me explain. It was discovered about 20 years ago, that Nestle were sending sales representatives into third world countries' hospitals disguised as maternity nurses to talk to the mothers of new born babies. They explained to the mothers that Nestle's baby milk formula was better for the baby than breast feeding (blatent lie) and that for the duration of the mother's hospital stay the formula would be free. Fair enough. Or maybe not. For a start off, once the mother got out of hospital, the cost for the amount of baby formula the baby needed per week added up to half of the family's earnings for the week. Not cheap. Also, the instructions written on the baby formula's packaging were in English. Ok, one might say, but in countries like Zimbabwe where 33 languages are spoken but NOT english it doesn't help, especially as the people are often so poorly educated that they can't even read one language. This attempt at instructions therefore lead to many people either over feeding or under feeding their children. Outcome: DEATH. Add to that the fact that the formula has to be mixed with sterilised clean water (both of which the third world rarely has) and you have a formula to KILL MILLIONS OF BABIES. It is said that a baby dies every 30 SECONDS in these countries. Are we helping them by eating Nestle products? Do you not think they make enough money from the chocolate business without killing babies unnecessarily? I do. Stop them now, boycott Nestle.

A good and interesting op, another member alerted me to Nestle's un-ethical factors which means that im now going to boycot Nestle. Jimmy:)
