The Dilemma of Third World Nutrition; Nestle and the Role of Infant Formula

Nestle S. A., 1985. Second edition. Wraps. 20 pages. 28 x 21 cm. Nestle’s response to the controversy over their infant feeding products sold in Third World countries. In 1973 the New Internationalist published a critical article of Nestle and its practice of marketing baby formula as a healthy alternative to mother’s milk. The article sparked an activist-led campaign to boycott Nestle products. This marketing method was, and is, against the rules of the World Health Organization. This report, prepared in 1982, reviews the medical accuracy of the complaints and traces the evolution of the controversy, analyzes the issues raised, and outlines the techniques employed by Nestle critics. Clean, crisp copy. Orig. light blue wraps. Very good. Item #27
