Nestlé’s Corporate Headquarters in Switzerland

Ooh! La, La! They’re not just about delectable chocolate anymore.
Since 1866, Nestlé has brought the world visions of sweet treats that they simply could not resist, but not anymore.
Now with roughly a mind-boggling 8,000 products and over $10 Billion in profits in 2013, they have become one of the biggest and yes, most often criticized food Corporations in the entire World.
“Nestlé has 447 factories, operates in 194 countries, and employs around 333,000 people” – Wikipedia.
But expansion did not come without great controversy for the Chocolate Giant and the list of subjects of abuse that have been made against this mega corporation is long and wide and includes:
chocolate price-fixing, child labor laws in Africa’s Ivory Coast, bottled water, infant formula, food contamination, ravaging rainforests, unions, human rights, corporate spying, to name only a meager few.
In fact, they abuse so many people, in so many ways and places, it is remarkable that they are still in business.
But that remark aside, they are not only alive and well, they are hugely prosperous and the seething critics chomping at their behinds, apparently have had little, to no effect, on their bottom line!
Sorry that did not quite work, did it?
Rather that go on ad nauseam, about what I have found out about this Company, I believe that it would be better if you went to the links below and read for yourself.
May I just say that in all of the years that I have been writing, I have never found so many reference points for a written work, as I did for this one, not ever!
These abuses are absolutely sickening and yet, Nestlé somehow, remains the most powerful, biggest and most wealthy, Food Mega Corporation in the world today.
Please my dear followers, do read some of the links below and learn all about the World’s favorite Chocolate Company.
Perhaps it may just be time for another Nation-Wide Boycott of Nestlé in this Country?
