International Nestlé-Free Week 25 - 31 October 2010
Nestlé is the target of a boycott over its aggressive marketing of baby milks around the world.
International Nestlé-Free Week (25 - 31 October 2010) is a time for those who support the boycott to do more to promote it and for those who don't boycott to give it a go, at least for a week, by avoiding Nescafé, the principal target of the boycott, and other Nestlé products.
Nestlé is one of the four most boycotted companies on the planet, according to GMI, and the boycott has forced important changes.
During International Nestlé-Free Week 2010, Baby Milk Action is calling on the public to email Nestlé over its latest global baby milk marketing strategy.
Nestlé is targeting mothers and health workers with the claim its formula 'protects' babies even though babies fed on formula are more likely to become sick than breastfed babies and, in conditions of poverty, more likely to die. Nestlé is accused of undermining the 'breast is best' message by claiming its formula is 'The new "Gold Standard" in infant nutrition' (image on site).
Nestlé is also accused of refusing to provide important information to parents and carers who use formula. Nestlé has already received thousands of emails, but is so far refusing to drop this marketing campaign.
