nestle ceo water human right 263x164 Nestle CEO: Water Is Not A Human Right, Should Be PrivatizedIs water a free and basic human right, or should all the water on the planet belong to major corporations and be treated as a product? Should the poor who cannot afford to pay these said corporations suffer from starvation due to their lack of financial wealth? According to the former CEO and now Chairman of the largest food product manufacturer in the world, corporations should own every drop of water on the planet — and you’re not getting any unless you pay up.

The company notorious for sending out hordes of ‘internet warriors’ to defend the company and its actions online in comments and message boards (perhaps we’ll find some below) even takes a firm stance behind Monsanto’s GMOs and their ‘proven safety’. In fact, the former Nestle CEO actually says that his idea of water privatization is very similar to Monsanto’s GMOs. In a video interview, Nestle Chairman Peter Brabeck-Letmathe states that there has never been ‘one illness’ ever caused from the consumption of GMOs.

Watch the video below for yourself:

The way in which this sociopath clearly has zero regard for the human race outside of his own wealth and the development of Nestle, who has been caught funding attacks against GMO labeling, can be witnessed when watching and listening to his talk on the issue. This is a company that actually goes into struggling rural areas and extracts the groundwater for their bottled water products, completely destroying the water supply of the area without any compensation. In fact, they actually make rural areas in the United States foot the bill.

As reported on by Corporate Watch, Nestle and former CEO Peter Brabeck-Letmathe have a long history of disregarding public health and abusing the environment to take part in the profit of an astounding $35 billion in annual profit from water bottle sales alone. The report states:

“Nestlé production of mineral water involves the abuse of vulnerable water resources. In the Serra da Mantiqueira region of Brazil, home to the “circuit of waters” park whose groundwater has a high mineral content and medicinal properties, over-pumping has resulted in depletion and long-term damage.”

Nestle has also come under fire over the assertion that they are actually conducting business with massive slavery rings. Another Corporate Watch entry details:

“In 2001, Nestlé faced criticism for buying cocoa from the Ivory Coast and Ghana, which may have been produced using child slaves.[58] According to an investigative report by the BBC, hundreds of thousands of children in Mali, Burkina Faso and Togo were being purchased from their destitute parents and shipped to the Ivory Coast, to be sold as slaves to cocoa farms.”


So is water a human right, or should it be owned by big corporations? Well, if water is not here for all of us, then perhaps air should be owned by major corporations as well. And as for crops, Monsanto is already working hard to make sure their monopoly on our staple crops and beyond is well situated. It should really come as no surprise that this Nestle Chairman fights to keep Monsanto’s GMOs alive and well in the food supply, as his ideology lines right up with that of Monsanto.

From around the web:

  • Adrian Garcia

    Hmm, does that apply only on Earth, or includes the water in space? And when did you guys buy all the water in the world? If it rained, will you be suing nature?

  • Cristian Filip

    No, he says you should work for him. If you don’t work for him and his kind you don’t deserve water. That’s what he is saying. It’s the modern slavery and he is the humble slave master.

  • MAJG

    I do like that they’ve pulled the video. Let me guess, he’s never struggled week to week in his life? Control the water supply, control the world. Lets allow private money grubbing billionaires who have never been without basics to control it.

  • Derek Osgood

    wow that video was taken down quick

  • Sage Andrews

    they took the video off the air… hahaha what better way to say oops this never happened then to erase all evidence…

  • Scott

    I think that its time for an intervention and then take him somewhere (like the middle of the sahara) and take his water away and see how long it takes him to start begging for it.Oh wait, we can’t be cruel, we will have gallons available… all he has to do is buy it…lol

  • sovereign being 1776

    convenient that the video is no longer existing, like the love for humanity in this being. only when there are no natural resources left will he realize that he can’t eat colorable money, electronic money, or gold

  • Anjana

    video is no longer available…did he actually say that about water?

  • Garret

    What a fucking psycho. I cant wait till someone kills him. Anyone who agrees with this asshole is going to burn in hell. Unreal.

  • Samayoch Abiyah

    Is there a campaign being organized against Nestlé, is there a warrant out for the arrest of this Narcissist? I hope so cause it’s about time we do something to curb these tyrants.

  • Steve C Scott

    I agree with you.We need more people like us.I will gladly spill my blood to take them ALL out.USN 1974-1980.

  • Ann Snyder

    The best way to get bottled water is to put a filter on your faucet and pour water into a reusable bottle. Stop supporting corporations' abuse and overuse of the world's fresh water supplies.

  • jimmy kraktov

    George W Bush has purchased a large piece of property in South America that sits on top of a major underground water source. When the oil's gone these greedy pricks want something else sell us. I heard of monetizing water years ago. They're now conditioning us to the next reality. Time to wake up!!

  • symboybot

    Someone should organize a petition to Nestle to demand the retraction of this idiot CEO's position and demanding a boycott of all Nestle products until he retracts his statement or is fired by Nestle. Please!!!

  • intelligence

    I am incredibly disappointed. Not with this guy who provides a SERVICE but with the idiots blindly following this biased article. NOWHERE in the video did this guy say the poor should suffer from starvation due to lack of funds. Who would say that besides an idiot who doesn't know the difference between starvation and dehydration? If you don't want to buy purified water, then go spend $1000 on a copper still and distill your own.
    You can use anything from sea water to piss.

    I especially liked his point about the "organic movement" not always being best for you. The majority of fluoride poisoning (amongst other maladies) comes from "natural" untreated well water.

    • A Concerned Human

      What if home-based water filters are made illegal for say 'health concerns'? Or you don't have $1000 for the still? When the means to access food/water other than purchasing are removed, it becomes pay-to-live. The only point that still needs raising is that it is already that way in many respects, we need to turn this bus around.

    • A Concerned Human

      I also feel I must point out the major flaw there in that you are saying "Can't pay for water? Pay for water instead!"

  • Mohamad

    What's next the privatization of air? Come on… stop this before it goes to far.

  • BD in Pennsylvania

    That is as stupid as saying if people cannot afford to pay for water they should do without.

    One point I disagree with is how the CEO being an ass or evil makes the company the same. He can be a major jerk but that does not mean that the company is itself bad. It just happens to be headed by an extremely ignorant individual

  • Sam

    He needs to be assassinated, just like most of D.C.

  • Gary

    This is a bottled water issue not a nestle issue. If you do not like the idea of privatized water then you should avoid bottled water of all brands as much as possible. Drink tap water. filter it if you have to.

  • Pampussycat

    You are selfish beyond belief.
    Fresh Air and clean water are everybodys rights
    You suck, you super greedy scum bag
    try going without….; anything/…. yourself
    go without water…. starve your family… and say its still okay
    greedy idiot

  • Bob Redhawk

    Hearing things like THIS makes me wonder how long civilization will REALLY last. To hell with oil and fracking and new sources of fuel for our consumption. What will YOU do without water??? NOTHING!!! No water = no life, and THIS suggestion of corporations "owning" all water rights is tantamont to global annihilation thru denial of a major source of life-giving fluids. You can see the results of no water today in sub-Saharan Africa…hundreds of thousands of people dying because of a lack of water. Corporate greed has no limits; they have punched thru the economic "glass ceiling", and WE are the ones who made that possible by buying their products!! Local governments should severely scrutenized these "suppliers" BEFORE giving them approval carte blanche to set-up shop in their municipality so they can do "business as usual". Had the municipalities KNOWN that the "product" of their new corporate resident would be detremental to mankind, I'm sure they would have cancled that companies approval to break ground for their "project".. NESTLES should be ordered to be dissolved by a world consortium of governments, and their ill-gotten greed and profits, be equally distributed to countries throughout the world. Just don't lamely "boycott" these bastards…PUT THEM OUT OF BUSINESS!!!!!!

  • Durk Simmons

    That was one of the most disturbing videos I have ever watched. You can see that he actually believes his opinion has merit. How anyone can question if WATER is a human right is terrifying.

  • o11y217

    i like the fact that anyone defending a free market economy will instantly be labelled as one of nestle's ''internet warriors''

    personally i think a free market economy only works when both parties come to the table on an equal footing, as in buying a bar of chocolate. if i dont negotiate a fair price with a shop owner and i dont buy chocolate i still have money to buy chocolate and the shop still has chocolate to sell. if nestle own water and i dont want to pay whatever price they are charging, then i die but they are fine. that imbalance means the free market fails because there is only one winner in any negotiation.

    • A Concerned Human

      But what if the local shop owner refuses to sell you the chocolate regardless of how much money you have necause they don't like you? then you starve, same issue.

      • A Concerned Human

        *Because

      • o11y217

        The chocolate bit was just a reference to Nestle. Change chocolate for any other consumer product; trainers, tv's, trombones etc. whatever you want to replace it with. It's just a metaphor to highlight that water is essential so the seller can change whatever they want in a free market, whereas any other consumer product the free market allows supply and demand to dictate the price. It's one of few commodities in the world that needs impartial regulation.

        • A Concerned Human

          Don't want to sound like I'm arguing as I believe we hold pretty much the same view, but yeah, the chocolate was perhaps a bad example for me to use, I was meaning any substance required for survival (Air, Food, etc) not just water. While yes, for non-essential items the free market economy can work, when the requirement to live has a requirement to work, the people are enslaved. We can choose to do without TVs and internet and mobile phones, but when someone else can choose whether or not you live on a whim something needs to change. IF water does become privatised, what is there to stop the company(ies) from saying "I don't like Texan's, no water for Texas!"?

    Taken out of context or what! I normally avoid Nestle as much as possible and like to stick the boot into them as well but lets this is edited and taken out of context.

    OMG he's a lizard!! Look at his eyes!!!

  • mauicruzr

    yeah right, as if he is an expert on the subject of nutrition. for starters, Nestle products are crap and not natural. Secondly, the majority of Americans eating GMO are incredibly unhealthy. Just look at the size of people that come from the USA… those GMO foods are bloating them. We see them all the time come to Hawaii for vacation and they look so sick, so overweight, so nutrient deprived. Check out the ones walking round like zombies in Costco. I didn't bother listening to more of this after that first announcement. The guy is clearly above and beyond our way of thinking. He doesn't appear to be very well either. Obviously enjoys playing God. We need rid the planet of corporations like these ones and especially the people running them.

    This guy is an A – HOLE. And like Monsanto, he has his head up his ARSS.GOM kill and has been proven. Water is free and everyone has a right to gather it, whether it is on a hiking adventure, out of your spigot, or from a well.
    It is people like this who have no regard for human life nor God. To them money is their GOD!

    There have been deaths and illnesses due to GMO corn. This was what caused the bankruptcy/winding up of Aventis Crop science.
    Nestle uses gmo cacao, high fructose, fluoride in many of their foods/drinks, all of which are poisons and produce organ failure, infertility, reduced intelligence, cancer.

    My water is metered by the city government and I pay for it. I also purchase large containers of water for drinking because government water is not in fact safe for drinking. From Egyptian times at least, water was used to make beer and fed to infants as well as adults, because "natural" water was unsafe. Putting a value on water means a precious resource is not abused. What is wrong with that?

    Nestle put a water inflow plant on the Colorado river a year ago. The river and all of Colorado are in a water shortage and this company wants to privatise water rights. What an ass! Does that mean rafting down the river will carry a Nestle tax as well as we raft down their privatized water…unbelievable. Boycott Nestle.

  • Nelson Leong

    I disagree with the authors output. The outcome is as a result of consumerism and is a result of needs being met. That is what Nestlé does, and, admittedly didn't always do well. All companies of the'world' have a major problem with being world sized. Their output is tested by the demand and supply. One only buys bottled water if you a) need it b) merely want it . All other issues don't matter. The issue of the author is too wide to reduce the long term objectives of the company. I worked in general advertising and then got a real position at Nestlé Australia then transferred to Nestlé worldwide. The company is broad. It has wide responsibilities and opportunities. Without the visibility and raising views of the market place, improvements will not happen. That is a secret to good innovation. It is also as important that all consumers have the right to discover damage and warnings to others is important. Keep challenging, without the challenge of the mind where will be human innovation.

    Nestles contributed $1,315,600.00 to defeat California’s Proposition 37 . Monsanto contribued $7,100,500.00. There are eleven more food conglomerates, each of which contributed more than $1 million to defeat 37. Including Monsanto, seven of these huge conglomerates contributed more than $2 million to defeat 37. Source: Organic Consumer’s Association http://bit.ly/ZVN0YD

    Nestle also makes up silly stories, such as not enough apples or vitamins in the United States. Will certainly not buy any Nestle product again and will let my daughter know to not give her children any product made by Nestle. Saying water should be owned b y corporations is psychopathic, and Monsanto and Nestle CEO's are total psychopaths.

    • A Concerned Human

      Unfortunately most haven't realised that their water is already largely controlled (at least in western society). Unless you collect rainwater or get your water from a local stream, you probably have to pay for your water (not at anywhere near the cost implied here, but still some cost). I am not aware of any city where that the water out of the kitchen tap is actually free.

  • edgee

    What is said in the article is not what is said in the video and the video itself is wildly out of date. This was aired in 2005 and Brabeck-Letmathe was removed from his position as CEO that same this year, due to an on going shift in his personal views away from the vision of the company. Paul Bulcke is now the CEO of Nestle and a thoroughly different figure, he is known for his integrity and inspirational leadership – rather than a cold Austrian fist like Brabeck-Letmathe whos main financial commitments now are in the oil industry. I'm not trollin', its just worth adding a bit of background, take it or leave it, your choice.

    • Kua

      You say he was removed from his position as CEO but neglected telling us where he went. According to Wikipedia (today) this person is now “Chairman of the board of directors” of Nestlé S.A. In other words he didn’t just go away, as is glibly implied by the word “removed”.
      Wikipedia 27 Apr 20013:
      “The executive board, a distinct entity from the board of directors, includes:
      Peter Brabeck-Letmathe, Chairman of the board of directors, Nestlé S.A.
      Paul Bulcke, chief executive officer, Nestlé S.A.
      Werner Bauer, Executive Vice President, Nestlé S.A., Chief Technology Officer, Head of Innovation, Technology, Research & Development
      Friz van Dijk, Executive Vice President, Nestlé S.A. Asia, Oceania, Africa, Middle East

      WE WILL BOYCOTT EVERY ONE OF YOU UNTIL YOUR PRODUCTS AND SERVICES ARE NO LONGER WANTED OR NEEDED, YOU MANUFACTURING PLANTS FALL DOWN, YOUR STOCK WITHERS AWAY INTO NOTHING, YOUR PENSIONS DRY UP AND YOUR FINANCING CONTACTS RUN FROM YOU!'
      However, so long as we rely on the concept of money and putting a numerical value on things humanity will always be enslaved to SOMEONE, if not nestle then the corporation people use so they can boycott nestle etc.
      Only with the removal of currencyy can humanity move forward. And it is possible, difficult, but possible. In a money-free society our species would be so much more efficient and productive, happier, healthier and smarter, and contrary to what many will tell you (particularly those for whom financial security is not an issue) it would not lead to a collapse of society if handled halfway competently.

    Wow,I find it interesting that the whole time I was watching this I kept thinking,” Oh Great another Hitler in our ranks”!

It is up to us to stop them by any non-violent means possible. THE WORLD IS A DANGEROUS PLACE TO LIVE, NOT BECAUSE OF PEOPLE WHO ARE EVIL, BUT BECAUSE OF THE PEOPLE WHO DON’T DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT!Further more,He is full of “crap” about G M O’s vs ORGANIC foods. I am proof,I have been on organic diet for 1 year now & am off 5 daily RX’s (medical/pharma another huge scam)& have lost 40+ pounds.That’s how full of crap they all are. I have done extensive online research in the last year & have found cures from the earth for virtually every disease known to man. Anyone can do the same as me, my best friend has lost 60 pounds doing the same as me.

    • alan

      I agree.. organic is way better then the GMO's.. they have been doing GMO in flowers and stuff and the bee population has been dying out cause of it.. GMO is killing us slowly, may not be instant but will eventually cause longterm effects.. this former CEO of Nestle has no clue on what he is saying & worried about the money only. I am glad to hear about the good effects that organic foods has been giving you… God certainly has given us everything we need for healing our bodies/ minds/ emotions through his natural pharmacy.. not man-made garbage.

    theu have been trying to monopolize it for over 1 yr. in Hungary I don't know how far they got but I was able to read a report from there that the sob even said they can drop dead from thirst if they don't buy nestle

    So his idea is that we can save people without water, by making water not a human right and because of that it will create jobs for millions of people? Telling us that we have everything we want and to stop crying about it. So we have to basically get water from the private sector and get jobs from that same sector, so we are totally dependent on them? Sounds like serfdom to me.

    Serfdom was part of Feudalism. Basically, poor people were forced to work the land they lived on, to pay the landlord (land owner) rents in order to remain there. If they didn't they were homeless and had to beg for money and food, just to survive. If you look at his model he would have people dependent on the private sector for food, water, basic human needs and also provide the jobs to obtain those needs, because those needs would have monetary value. How the fuck is that any different from serfdom? Serf means slave.

    Work for us for the money to pay us for the food and water you need! In other-words make a sponge a rich capitalist kingpin, while everyone else is stuck at the bottom.

    • A Concerned Human

      What you fail to realise is that this has already happened; the entirety of the human race is enslaved by currency and too blinded/distracted by the pretty lights and sounds to realise it's enslavement. These people are simply trying to eliminate corporate competition. Though to look on the bright side this may at least provide a unifying force for the masses, however we need to make sure we have the right target (i.e. money itself, not just those who control it). If the 99% really don't want to be controlled, the 1% can't control them. It is only so long as we hold on to the concept of money that corporations have power.

    When Are We going to get it, That we have to ban together to stop the destruction of Society , Families and all the evils that these negative minded CEO's Have in store for us. Do You Actually believe that they can do this / I don't think so, But it's up to Us, remember these people cannot do anything less we allow them, and we have for too long ; for our lack of response and involvement in these issues that are alarming and dangerous to our survival ,Remember , It Is in our hands the power to change what ever we want to change, but we have to do it COLLECTIVELY! " The Government Should Be afraid of it's People" And not the other way around like it is Now! WAKE UP AMERICA FROM YOUR LETHARGY, WAKE UP!!!!!

      Lets send Nestles down the tubes where it belongs, we DO HAVE THE POWER.

  • pritchard

    i could hardly finish the film as his words were bullshit and the personal greed, just makes me sick, it probably about time we stood up and did something about these enviroment destroying companies!!!!!! and organic is better than gmo products, every word out of these peoples mouths are lies

  • Luis Lozano

    Simple.. DO NOT BUY OR USE NESTLE OR THIER PARTNERS OR BANKS PRODUCTS.. BAN THEM FROM OUR WORLD.. URE WORLD!… in the absence of light.. darkness will prevail… read and educate ureselves.. its on the net and its free anfd its YOURS!

    A law should be drawn up that prohibits any water source that feeds a public reservoir cannot be dammed, diverted,polluted,or drained in any manner as it effects public health, safety, or welfare This should be a federal law that supersedes any state law pertaining to water rights . You don't make a law,your going to lose your water because they won't take your water and sell it back to you,….no they'll sell it to the highest bidder which probably will be someone who's rich and lives in the desert. Ring any bells out there in dreamland. Your already fighting their wars for them,you gonna give them your water too?Do they give you oil? Do they give you anything but trouble.

    • Elmjcil

      There is a reservoir in Midlothian, Va. that is quite large and they prohibit any type of motor boat…. only allow boats with electric motors and paddle boats. But, they allow building around it so, I assume that it might just get pollution from that.

  • Kathryn

    I am sooooo glad that this article came out!!! I can't believe the nerve some people have in there crazy little heads that they have such power!! I will never buy any product from Nestlé again!! We have to watch out for these rich corporations who believe they have the right to control such a thing like our water, while they get richer, by doing this to us, there customers!! We struggle as it is!! But it's ok, because I LOVE Hershey's way more, especially now!!

    • Elmjcil

      hersheys , after the founder died, ripped up their roots and moved them to Mexico. Ask the people of Hershey, Pa. how they feel about them…… and, do you really trust things made in Mexico……. especially edible things?

    • MauiCruzr

      all corporations are bad Kathryn. you have to start seeing them for what they are… they dont produce quality, they produce quantity. they need to make money to keep their shareholders happy and that means compromising the health of consumers buying their products. support local small privately owned businesses. Forgo the hershey kisses… you dont need them, you need REAL kisses! :-))

  • Melinda

    This is some of the sickest stuff I have ever heard. No more Nestle for me. this man is out of touch with the world to the point of being delusional. someone get him to a psych ward.

    We have so many good systems in place with good people trying to do the right thing. Every day I see countless entries on various sites, including my own, detailing their frustrations about the takeover of humanity. We need to be able to band together through one site and attack as a united people. Although the majority of people, in my opinion, want to do what's right – they will not out of fear of not conforming to the media mass.
    It still sickens me that something as simple as fluoridated water is being allowed in the U.S. when other countries pulled together to ban it. We all speak of pride for our country but when it comes to doing anything about the evils we're subjected to, we don't want to "make waves" or go "against the grain". Well it's time to rock the boat…Time to rock the world. It's time to take back our country! What happened to us? Every day we're mad as hell…and complain to who? It's really not about us. It never was! It's about our planet and future generations. How do we start something and see it through to the end? Anyone? Everyone? http://www.mrbobswellness.com

  • sharon

    Maude Barlow of the Council of Canadians has been working for years on water rights. We were warned over 20 years ago regarding human rights to water and the privatization of water (bottled, then run-of-the-rivers).

    Along with that misery, we face corporate patents on nature!
    When will it end?

    Intuition tells me that GMO are bad. He's throwing out unscientific data as though nobody has been hurt by GMO in the last 15 years.
    I'll grow my own foods, buy organic, and eat GMO.
    There is no arguing with a man like this. Even if we removed this man from earth, another man would quickly take his place. Let's stop pulling the weeds and start planting our own seeds of wisdom and knowledge.

    • Debbie

      I think that you meant to say "I'll grow my own foods, buy organic and NOT EAT GMO's". I could only hope that they are labeled as such. Like your idea of the stop to pulling the weeds, yes the lowely Dandelion is queen and a honey bee favorite. I fear that the likes of Monsanto want a genetic that does not include a honey bee. Thereby, we have only ONE seed source for our food.
      Monsanto and GMO need to be stood up to if we are to survive their evil empire.

      • j00

        You hit the nail on the head

    • Justin

      I need to point out that you opened up the statement claiming that "Intuition" tells you GMO's are bad. In the next sentence you claim he isnt using anything scientific in his claim. You may wish to follow your own standard. And what do you mean "Remove" him from the earth. That sounds really fascist. Always keep a close eye on your premise.

    • symboybot

      "Even if we removed this man from earth, another man would quickly take his place." All in the name of greed!

    Wow – no more Nestle for me. What a greedy monster.

    My family and I will personally boycott Nestle and ALL of its Products.
    I also read that Nassim N. Taleb is doing the same.

  • http://www.bestblender.co.uk/ Carl Thomas

    I feel any government or business or individual person should have a cap on how big they can grow and how much money they can amass. These are the real dangers in this world, as they have control of food and water, not the terrorists. The real terrorists exist within our political, economic and corporate structures. He mention cattle need water. This is how they think of us. Last I checked, I already pay for metered water. It's not free where I come from. I think this suggests that price we pay now will be nothing to what they have in store for us in the future. Mass starvation and water shortages are on the horizon and they'll blame it on global warming and peak oil, instead of their desire to thin down the herd and have the remaindering survivors as simple minded slaves.

    • Mark

      Carl You are so right. I think we know who the real Terrorist in the world are.

    • Debbie

      As the article stated…. they already have the slave children, now they want the adults too. I agree with your thoughts on this. It is unfortunate that unknown to most, this is allowed to happen. I am very glad to have read this article and now will boycott all of 'Nestle' products in the future. These people, Monsanto and friends and now Nestle are evil minded with no consideration for human, environment or health; just their own wealth. It is time people wake up and take note of what is happening.
      Wish that this would go viral all over the world.

    Nestles was boycotted in the 60-70's for sending high protein baby formula to 3rd world countries that they knew the high was blinding babies because there wasnt enuff of something else in the formula. Nestles, net caught tuna, OJ, Vietnam war, Disneyland and more. I was born in 44 and not a Nazi. My father want to napalm my friends who were protesting the V war tho.

      He would have been one year old when the war ended. How could he be a Nazi sympathizer? Not that I agree wth him though.

    • Steve

      He is an asshole obviously and extremely stupid, but concluding from his place and time of birth that he's a Nazi is very stupid, too!

    This non-human (Nazi) is as scary as it gets. But wait, the WHO will give him what he wants and so will the politicians all over the developed globe. Nestle will own the water rights in the next 10 years if we don't stop it soon.

    • http://islandwomanculebra.blogspot.com MJS

      Your point is why it is so important for the public to vote with their wallets. Boycott the products they (and any and every other company you feel this way about). The link is to products by Nestle.

  • Maria

    As of today I will DEFINITELY not purchase any Nestlé products. I was a big purchaser of their bottled water.

    • Cillendor

      Same. Despite my long-seated hatred of that company, I still bought their chocolate chips. No more.

    • o11y217

      Why buy bottled water from anywhere? It's outrageously overpriced compared to tap water, and is far worse for the environment.

    • Sheri

      I'm with you Maria!!

  • Val

    Thank you for this reformative article. I purchase a lot of chocolate, and I will be careful from now on to NEVER purchase a Nestle product again. Corporations have bought the puppet politicians, but we still wield the power with our consumer choices. I was a little surprised the article didn't also touch on Nestle's shameful record promoting infant formula to 3rd world countries. If everyone would stop buying their products, Mr. Brabeck could think up all the evil ideas he wants without it bringing harm to the earth or it's inhabitants.

    • Mark

      Maria , I too will boycott Nestle’s products from here on out also.
      Mark

      • MarktooM

        Mark,
        Me too.
        Mark too

    • Kathy

      I was surprised too. The misinformation campaign that accompanied Nestle's marketing of baby formula (because its more 'modern' it's better than breast feeding) did a great deal of harm, particularly in 3rd world countries where an infant's access to breast milk was even more important to survival and long term health, than in the 1st world.

  • MortenB

    Exactly the reason that I always avoid Nestle products when shopping… Also Nestle promote GMO (number 2, after Monsanto)

    In my opinion, Nestle products for small children with MSG (Maltodextrin) and added arsenic should have been forbidden.

    • Brian

      MSG is monosodium glutamate; it's not a sweetener, but a sort of preservative – flavor enhancer. Like the "ACCENT" stuff you shake on meat… bad stuff.

  • Shane

    Thank you for this video. I now consider Nestle to be as devious as Monsanto.

    • Cillendor

      I have family who work for them in the office/production level. They hate it. Even locally, Nestlé works employees for double their job description without increasing pay. They utterly disregard their employees families and lives outside work. They are a horrible place to work.
