Gone off to Amsterdam to have a bit of a 'change'... look out for 'Golden Susans' coming soon to a supermarket shelf near you.

Well I googled them and there are a few student forums that are also aware of the problem, but nothing about them being withdrawn or discontinued, so I resorted to emailing nestle, so what this space :-)

...but NOT for GOLDEN Grahams...

 

And anyway, why the hell are they called "Grahams" - why not "Golden Gregorys" or something similar...?

Lula,

 

So sorry to hear of your loss.

 

My thoughts are with you and your family during this sad time.

 

I can only hope that this will help you to get through it, in memory of Graham...

I say Boycott Nestle.

 

And not just for this show of arrogance either. For buying out Crosse & Blackwells, promising that all jobs were safe, then closing down the factory in our town. I wonder how many workers had to suffer at the hands of unscrupulous DCAs as a result of losing their jobs.

 

McVities too. Bought out an old established biscuit company, and shut THAT down as well.

 

So don't buy Branston Pickle or Simmers of Hatton biscuits. There is no Simmers of Hatton any more. Just a trademarked name.

 

:(:(:(

Nestle are not a nice company...

 

Nestle - undermining infant health1.5 million babies die every year in poor countries because they are not breast fed says UNICEF. Millions more become seriously ill. The water mixed with baby milk powder in poor conditions is often unsafe. This leads to diarrhoea and often death. Babymilk is very expensive - it can cost more than half a family's income. Poor people often have to overdilute the powder to make it last longer and their babies are then likely to become malnourished. Breast feeding is free, safe and protects against infetion. Even undernourished mothers can breast feed successfully. Baby food companies have known for years that babies die from unsafe bottle feeding, yet they still aggressively promote their milk because they also know that if they don't get babies on the bottle, they don't do business.

 

Mike Garrett of the food giant Nestle will be speaking on "Developing a Strategy for Exploiting the Commercial Potential in China and Overcoming the Practical Difficulties of Operating in this Under-Tapped Market" . Nestle is the subject of a boycott in 17 countries because of its irresponsible marketing of breastmilk substitutes. Nestle promotes milk and milk products, for example by giving milk to hospitals in the Third World for free or at a low price. The company has an annual turnover of $42 billion The campaign group, Baby Milk Action, is exposing the reality of Nestle's business in China. The company's efforts to establish its baby food market in that country have already threatened the health of the 25 million babies born there each year. A recent report showed how promotion strategies have resulted in the widespread use of artificial milk and a decrease in breastfeeding in the Kunming region.

Because they are made with Graham flour, see here Graham flour - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.

 

I was at the global launch of Golden Grahams in the UK back in the early 1990's.

What "show of arrogance" is that? If a product that they manufacture and then allow you to buy is not performing for them, should they continue to make it anyway, for fear of inviting your ire?

 

Nestlé are a business, they are run for profit, not for you.

 

Crosse & Blackwell is a portfolio of retail food brands sold by the Nestlé Group to Premier Foods in 2002. Branston Pickle is one of those brands.
