List of companies owned by Nestlegreenspun.com : LUSENET : Ethical Consumerism - UK : One Thread
Is it possible for me to obtain a copy of all the companies that Nestle own in order for me to avoid purchasing anything from them?

It is possible to obtain a full list of companies that Nestle owns from a directory called Who Owns Whom, published by Dun & Bradstreet. Large libraries would have this publication in theire reference section.
However, having said that, I suspect what you are really after, is a full listing of brands produced by Nestle. Unfortunately, all Nestle companies operate independently in country, and therefore, Nestle itself does not have a complete list of all its brands, which in total amount to over 20,000 I believe.
There is a short brand listing which you can get from Baby Milk Action and/or Ethical Consumer, I think, which highlights all the major UK brands such as its cereals, petfoods, pastas, etc.
Hope this helps - if you get any further information, I would be grateful if you could share it with me.
I am a Researcher working in Save the Children's Marketing Department. Save the Children partially funds the Baby Milk Action Campaign and does not work with Nestle or any of its subsidiaries.
