Nestle’s enormous California (water) bottling plant is on an Indian reservation so they don’t have to adhere to government water restrictions during droughts or report on how much water they’re actually using.
Nestle agreed in 2001 to ensure its products were not made with slave labor by 2005. In 2005, the international organization it made the agreement with found it had not done so.
Nestle actively supports child trafficking and child slavery in Africa to obtain cocoa. Several organizations have been trying to end Nestle’s involvement, and in 2005 Nestle signed an ILO agreement to stop supporting child labor. 10 years later, Nestle hasn’t stopped.
Nestle paid doctors and nurses in developing countries in the 1970’s to promote their baby formula over breast-feeding, leading to the deaths of thousands of infants.
