Baby Milk Action

Companies: Nestlé

Baby Milk Action (BMA), a UK-based non-profit group, is opposing Nestlé's aggressive baby formula marketing campaigns. In cooperation with other child health organizations, BMA is calling for the continued boycott of all Nestlé products and brands due to the company’s refusal to comply with the World Health Assembly’s baby food marketing guidelines. International Baby Food Action Network (IBFAN), a world-wide network of organizations dedicated to reducing infant mortality, found Nestlé to be responsible for more violations of baby food marketing requirements, as outlined by the World Health Assembly, than any other company. BMA claims that Nestlé’s practices are needlessly putting greater numbers of infants at risk of malnutrition and even death by misleading mothers about the health benefits of its baby food products.
