Nestle boycott list

The campaign led by the International Nestlé Boycott Committee primarily targets Nescafé, the corporation's flagship product. But we would encourage you to boycott all Nestlé products until the company stops promoting its babymilk. Here is a guide to Nestlé's principal brands in the UK. You will also find brand information on the Nestlé website at http://www.nestle.com/ and on national Nestlé websites.

We have set up a discussion group for boycotters with questions about Nestlé's connection to particular brands. To join the group, send an email to nestleboycottproducts-subscribe@yahoogroups.com or click here.

Credit-card size cards with the main UK brands on one side and a short explanation of the boycott on the other are available in our online Virtual Shop - click here. We also stock Nescafé - No thanks! and Nespresso - No thanks! cards.

IMPORTANT NOTE: We list products from which Nestlé profits. So Nestlé ice cream is listed because, although Nestlé sold the company, it continues to receive payments for use of the brand name. We welcome new information regarding changes in ownership, but please remember that headline stories about brands being sold do not usually give all the details of the deal. We only remove a product from the list when we are reasonably confident that all links to Nestlé have been cut

Items marked with an * are either part-owned by Nestlé, such a L'Oreal, Body Shop, Lactalis Nestlé Chilled Dairy (a 60:40 joint venture between Lactalis and Nestlé, which owns Rachel's Dairy) and Cereal Partners (a 50:50 joint venture with General Mills) or have been sold but there is an arrangement by which Nestlé continues to profit from them.

Branston Pickle, Crosse and Blackwell, Fox's Glacier Mints, Gales Honey, Libby's Juices, Sun Pat, Sarsons and Tartex may appear on old lists, but no longer have any link to Nestlé. Findus and Haagen Daz have no link to Nestlé in the UK.

Some brand names below link to reports in our Boycott News newsletter giving more explanation.

There is a report on own brand cereals manufactured by Nestlé's Cereal Partners business in Boycott News 32.

Last change: 7 August 2012: Rachel's Dairy has been added to the boycott list following its move into the Lactalis Nestlé Chilled Dairy (LNCD joint venture). Lactalis purchased Rachel's Dairy in August 2010 and recently announced its move into the joint venture. Lactailis owns 60% of the joint venture and Nestlé 40%.
