Letter in the Buxton Advertiser exposing Nestle's false claims regarding South Africa marketing campaign

As I mentioned last week, we have produced a briefing paper responding to the campaign to present Nestlé as complying with baby food marketing requirements, promoted by UK Member of Parliament, Tom Levitt MP. This can be downloaded from:

With Mr. Levitt still not responding to the messages, communication continues through the pages of his local paper, the Buxton Advertiser. The current edition has my letter exposing Nestlé's claims that its infant formula advertising and labeling in South Africa comply with international and government requirements. They do not. Mr. Levitt has said he accepts Nestlé's explanation, which suggests he did not check the position of the South African authorities on his Nestlé-funded trip to South Africa nor since.
