No Thanks, Nestlé
The brand geniuses at Nestlé USA want your money. That’s why they
sell organic Gerber-brand baby food and Sweet Leaf Tea, brands designed
to appeal to health-conscious consumers like you. To capture a share of
the growing market for organics.
Trouble is, the
corporate leaders at Nestlé also don’t want to have to label the
genetically engineered ingredients in any of their non-organic brands.
But they don’t want you to know that. So they contributed more
than $1 million to the NO on I-522 campaign by funneling it through the
Grocery Manufacturers Association’s “Defense of Brand Strategic
Account,” a secret and, as it turns out, illegal slush fund.
Time to tell
Nestlé Chairman and CEO, Paul Grimwood, and Corporate &
Brand Affairs, Hannah Coan, it’s not nice to lie to consumers. So you’ll
be buying your organic baby food and organic teas somewhere else, thank
you very much.
