Nestlé CEO, Paul Bulcke, will deliver a speech entitled Water - the Linchpin of Food Security considering what global companies must do in order to meet the challenge of resource scarcity, particularly water shortage

  I am struggling to understand what Nestlé can teach about appropriate use of and care for the earth's resources. 

Aside from its appalling record for pushing infant feeding products,  Nestlé is criticised over its bottling of water resources, not only for the energy used in moving bottles around, but the environmental impact of the bottling operations. It took a ten year campaign and finally the threat of daily fines to stop Nestlé's operation in the Brazilian town of São Lourenço, where it produced Pure Life water for the whole of Brazil and damaged the water park in this historic spa town. Not only did Nestlé oppose the campaign, it planted spies in Attac Switzerland, when it was working with Brazilian campaigners on this issue. Last month,  NESTLE and SECURITAS AG were found guilty of spying activities directed at ATTAC.and the court recognized that these parties conducted illegal infiltrations.  Click HERE for more information
