South African Group boycotts Nestle

from the UK Telegraph

AfriForum, a civil rights initiative spun out of a mainly Afrikaner trade union, said it was giving Nestle one week in which to announce it would stop buying milk from Gushungo Dairy Estate.

The Telegraph reported at the weekend that Nestle's Zimbabwean subsidiary is buying up to a million litres a year from the formerly white-owned farm, whose owner was, according to dairymen, forced to sell to the authorities after a campaign of violence.

AfriForum is contacting human rights groups around the world to ask them to join its campaign, and has already launched a website,, on the subject.

My objection is that they are buying from Grace, but this "group" obviously has another agenda.
