"As a responsible food company, I don't like to have an image that I am unethically behaving."
- JPeter Brabeck, CEO of Nestlé in 2003.1
In late 2002, Oxfam,2 a relief group based in London, revealed that Nestlé SA (Nestlé), one of the largest manufacturers of food products in the world, was claiming compensation of $6 million from Ethiopia, one of the poorest countries in the world.
In addition, the nationalization had been undertaken by a previous government, and there seemed little reason for Nestle to rake up an old issue and demand such a huge sum. The compensation claim seemed to show that the company lacked a sense of social responsibility. Several relief agencies world over, called for a boycott of Nestlé's products.
