How ethical is Nestle? : LUSENET : Ethical Consumerism - UK : One Thread

Nestle has a promotion for schools which brings in 10p for every purchase, how ethical are the company? For obvious reasons most schools will want the money but they have not had a good history of ethical trading in the past, has this changed?

Unfortunately, very little has changed, and Nestle are still violating codes of conduct for baby milk marketing. For more information, see the Baby Milk Action website

We therefore recommend avoiding this offer, on the basis that, while it helps children in the UK, it helps to promote a company which is having a seriously detrimental impact on children elsewhere. You may wish to write to Nestle stating why you are avoiding theoffer, using information from the website above.
