Boycott Nestle?

I see the press is reporting on Nestle, whom is buying approximately 1 million liters of milk from a farm seized by Robert Mugabe. Strangely enough this farm now belongs to Bob's wife, Grace Mugabe.

This just shows how corrupt Bob is. Taking successful white owned farms for him and thereby enriching himself and his family.

*Nestle defense are that since the collapse of Zimbabwe's dairy industry it has been forced to buy milk on the open market "from a wide variety of suppliers on a non-contractual basis" for its factory in Harare. "This includes milk from the Gushungo Dairy Estate which today accounts for between 10 and 15% of Nestlé's local milk supply," the statement said.
"Had Nestle decided to close down its operations in Zimbabwe, the company would have triggered further food shortages and hundreds of job losses among its employees and milk suppliers in an already very difficult situation.

Well, I’m sorry to hear that Nestle. I’m pretty sure that your main concern wasn’t the poor people of Zimbabwe, but most likely keeping up the profits. Don’t try and bullshit us. You are buying stolen milk from a dictator.

I definitely won’t be buying any more Nestle products soon.

I don't know whether boycotting products of a huge corporation even works, but I will now be more careful about buying Nesle products.
(Aren't they the people who once tried (and successfully too) to convince new mothers (in Africa) that breastfeeding was not as good as using their product?)

Desia. Yah, I feel they are being hypocritical. They probably won't feel the few dollars I spend on them, but to me it is a matter of pincipal.

They are not getting any of my money anymore and I will do my best to spread the word.
