To be a bit sad that they are talking about the formula demand in China as being a good business opportunity?

They were talking about the current formula buying restrictions due to the demand in China for British brands due to the lack of trust in Chinese brands.

They kept saying that we in Britain should make more to make the most of this business opportunity.

I find this rather distasteful. People are trying to feed their children and are worried about how they do this both here and in China. Surely, talking about how much money you can make from it is a bit wrong?

YABU.... Making infant formula is not an altruistic act. It's a product, a business and a source of profit like any other. Children have died in China because they were given adulterated milk products and manufacturers have been prosecuted. Better we make a few quid selling a safe reliable product, surely?

The milks not been rationed here because there's not enough of it - it's been rationed to make sure people don't bulk buy it to resell over there

Why shouldn't they make money from it?
