We all know them as the makers of an appalling range of substances they have the gall to describe as 'coffee', but they have been guilty of much worse, and thus from 25 October to 31 October we have "Nestlé-Free week.
The aim of the campaign is not to hurt Nestlé economically but to let them know that corporate activities do not go unnoticed by consumers.
I support the boycott of Nestlé products.
According the the World Health Organisation Authority (WHO) 1.5 million babies die every year as a result of inappropriate feeding. Despite this Nestlé continues to push its baby milks in breach of international standards.
Monitoring by groups on the ground around the world shows Nestlé is responsible for more violations than any other company. That's why it is singled out for boycott action.
If you don't boycott Nestlé already, I ask that you consider looking at the evidence and giving up Nestlé products, or at least its principal brand, Nescafé coffee.
The boycott has forced some changes from the company, but it is still a long way from complying. Campaigners are also working for laws. Nestlé can comply when it is given no choice. It is not being asked to do something that is impossible, but without pressure it continues to put its own profits before infant health and mothers' rights.
You can find out more information and look at the evidence yourself on the Baby Milk Action website at:
You can sign up there to support the boycott.
It is important to tell Nestlé you will be boycotting it until it accepts and acts on the plan put to it by boycott groups for saving infant lives.
You can Nestlé send a message via its website
They have changed some of their practices and there is hope that they will change some more - they do make some good quality products and it is to their shame as a compant that they feel the need to dominate their industry to the point of unethical business practices.
Coffee however, is NOT one of their good quality products...
