Expell Nestles from UN Global Compact Office Initiative

Once again the Nesles is called on to observe the international standards they accepted. Experts have called on the UN Global Compact Office to expel Nestles because the company is, as usual, ignoring the international Code of Marketing Breast Milk Substitutes and in this way undermining breastfeeding: “Trade union busting” and ignoring related court decisions, failing to stop child labor and slavery in its cocoa supply chain, exploiting  the coffee and dairy industry farmers, degrading  water resources. Nestle has three months to respond but I doubt they will do anything other than deny the charges. Their slogan should be money first people last.
