Campaigners Remain Skeptical Over Nestlé’s Infant Formula Marketing Policy

The Guardian: Campaigners remain unpersuaded by Nestlé’s baby milk marketing policy
Oliver Balch, freelance writer specializing in the role of business in society

“… The Swiss firm [Nestlé] certainly espouses the ‘numerous benefits’ of breast milk and provide tips on breastfeeding. Yet its official infant formula policy falls short of the WHO code, campaigners maintain. … After more than 30 years, campaigners still aren’t persuaded by Nestlé’s baby milk marketing policy. No amount of auditing will change that. A clearer public commitment is what they want” (3/17).
