Chinese farmers are tired of selling their milk to Nestle at steeply discounted prices, and want an end to local bans on selling elsewhere. Some have threatened to slaughter their cows instead of letting Nestle and their government-backed local monopoly m

Noted.Thanks Cal.The predicament of the Chinese dairy farmers is of little concern to us.What concerns us is that our government might consider importing Chinese milk.We already have enough of their rubbish in our supermarkets now.Apart from the health risk of their milk, the importatation of their milk could seriously hurt our own dairy farmers who are battling now to survive.The same goes for their fruit and vegetables that are already on sale in our supermarkets at a cheaper price ;the consequence ,apart from the health risk our own farmers are struggling..We have a lot to thank our polies for, they allowed this.

I personally would much rather shop close to home and buy from local farmers for many reasons that we members of Care2 know only too well. However, as I saw written somewhere else today," Every time you purchase a product you are making a moral choice; I don't want to wear peoples suffering... " Nestle is a huge corporation and according to this page http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Nestl%C3%A9_brands their product range is a lot more extensive than I ever imagined. So I will endevour to continue buying local and buying fair trade where possible and not buy from greedy unscrupulous multinationals such as Nestle.

WE TEND TO BOYCOTT NESTLE PRODUCTS WHEREVER POSSIBLE. THEY HAVE ONE OF THE WORST TRACK RECORDS FOR THE EXPLOITATION OF PEOPLE ACROSS THE GLOBE AND PARTICULARLY IN THE POORER COUNTRIES. WE ONLY EVER BUY LOCAL PRODUCE - TASMANIAN PRODUCED. OUR FARMERS ET AL ARE STRUGGLING AND NEED ALL THE SUPPORT THEY CAN GET. MEANWHILE OUR GOVERNMENT IS SELLING ARABLE LAND TO CHINA AT A GREAT RATE OF KNOTS - SO THEY CAN MINE TO THEIR HEART'S CONTENT.

No I'm not in support of the Nestle's co but I'm also not in support of China sending anymore of their crap here either.

Just another corporation running roughshod over the little guy. That is all corporations seem to do any more. Their greed is always hungry for more.

I can't feel sorry for anyone who makes a buck off the backs of tortured enslaved animals.

Too bad, so sad.

Unfortunately the cows suffer either way. I also can not feel sorry for anyone who profits from the suffering of animals. Dairy farmers/ Nestle? Nestle may be bigger but they both do dirty business.
