List of companies owned by Nestle : 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?

Many thanks,

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.

Good luck.
