here. this is not an anti formula thing, it's an anti-nestle thing & their despicable practices in developing countries.

ilovemydog Wed 10-Sep-08 20:56:46

Oh my god!

And nestle's reponse is.....

hoxtonchick Wed 10-Sep-08 20:57:47

liath Wed 10-Sep-08 21:00:35

corona Wed 10-Sep-08 21:26:28

That's awful. Makes me so so angry. How can they get away with it?

AuntieMaggie Wed 10-Sep-08 21:33:01

Nestle have had a bad reputation for years. Have a look here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nestl%C3%A9#ControversyregardingNestl.C3.A9

hoxtonchick Wed 10-Sep-08 21:39:14

oh i know it's not news auntie maggie, but they have been doing it for years & despite international outcry appear to have no intention of stopping.

Madlentileater Wed 10-Sep-08 21:41:29

why am i not surprised. As we say in this house, 'that's capitalism'

morocco Wed 10-Sep-08 21:47:44

rampant out of control capitalism with no laws to hold it back, though, madlentileater, so the worst kind

very very sad

Madlentileater Wed 10-Sep-08 21:52:26

is there another sort?

SoupDragon Wed 10-Sep-08 21:55:58

Why would they want to get mothers to buy the coffee creamer rather than their formula milk though?

liath Wed 10-Sep-08 22:08:39

I'd guess that becuase it's cheaper it's than proper formula it therefore sells more and overall makes more profit.

singingtree Wed 10-Sep-08 22:19:19

glad you posted this hc. it's so so awful (it's shreddies btw)

Eirlys Thu 11-Sep-08 04:00:32

and is a good kick up the arse to be vigilant with my Nestle boycott.
