Nestle's 142nd AGM

Today it's Nestle's 142nd Annual General Meeting in Lausanne, Switzerland.

I bought a Nestle share a few years ago to attend and raise questions, but Nestle wouldn't allow me to register it to have this right, something the stockbroker had never come across before. All the same I was able to attend a couple of years ago, though not to speak.

Some people did raise some issues of importance to shareholders regarding the criticisms Nestle was facing around the world. They were hissed and booed for doing so. Read my report here:

There is a webcast from this year's AGM on the Nestle site. It will be interesting to see if they include any critics who are able to speak.

More on what happened shortly.
