Nestlé owns: (I will update this list constantly, but if you see something I missed, let me know!)


The lovely Aquapods Cafemom is promoting?  Owned by Nestle.

Nestle Buys Gerber for $5.5 Billion

Nestle agreed yesterday to buy the Gerber brand from the Swiss drugmaker Novartis for $5.5 billion in cash, giving the world's biggest food company 82 percent of the U.S. baby-food market.  This INCLUDES Gerber Life Insurance, sadly.







IMPORTANT NOTE: We list all products from which Nestlé profits. So Nestlé ice cream is listed because, although Nestlé sold the company, it continues to receive payments for use of the brand name. We welcome new information regarding changes in ownership, but please remember that headline stories about brands being sold do not usually give all the details of the deal. We only remove a product from the list when we are reasonably confident that all links to Nestlé have been cut

Items marked with an * are either part-owned by Nestlé (such a L'Oreal, Body Shop and Cereal Partners, a 50:50 joint venture with General Mills) or have been sold but there is an arrangement by which Nestlé continues to profit from them (such as Rowntrees jelly - which will be changing name to break the link with Nestlé).

Branston Pickle, Crosse and Blackwell, Fox's Glacier Mints, Gales Honey, Libby's Juices, Sun Pat, Sarsons and Tartex may appear on old lists, but no longer have any link to Nestlé. Findus and Haagen Daz have no link to Nestlé in the UK.

Some brand names below link to reports in our Boycott News newsletter giving more explanation.

There is a report on own brand cereals manufactured by Nestlé's Cereal Partners business in Boycott News 32.

Last updated: 16 May 2007 (Body Shop added as part-owned, Ashbourne water removed as Nestlé has closed it down. Some existing brands added). Internationally, Nestlé has recently acquired Jenny Craig, Uncle Tobys and Novartis Medical Nutrition.

Now, I KNOW this looks like a lot, but as I walked around the grocery store, I realized that it's not that hard to spot it. If you remember SOME of the brands, Nestle has their name ALL over some others.
Also, Nestle doesn't make ANYTHING that you can't buy other brands of!

dh printed out a list of nestle products at work last night and put in on our fridge so we can avoid their products when we make our grocery lists(i.e. writing down alternate brands or even 'no garnier products,') for example, when we write down items.

What kind of food is she on now?
My favorite brands, that I actually trust,  would be Nutro, Evo, and Evolve.
Maybe they have on that would work for your kitty?

These are a little more expensive than, say, Friskies, and the grocery store doesn't sell them, but my kitty is so insanely shiny and healthy on these, and her litterbox doesn't stink!  It digests easily, so maybe just having a higher quality food might help?

I know you can get Nutro at Pet's Mat/Petco, but the other two, I found at privately-owned pet food stores.


Edit:
Looks like Evo has a brand called "California Natural" that is designed specifically for sensitive cats.

Eeek... ingredients of your kitty food:

"Lamb, brewers rice, corn gluten meal, chicken meal, wheat gluten, dried egg product, soybean meal, oat meal, animal fat preserved with mixed-tocopherols (form of Vitamin E), fish meal, animal digest, soybean oil, potassium chloride, phosphoric acid, calcium carbonate, salt, choline chloride, zinc proteinate, taurine, Vitamin E supplement, manganese proteinate, ferrous sulfate, L-ascorbyl-2-polyphosphate (source of Vitamin C), niacin, copper proteinate, Vitamin A supplement, calcium pantothenate..."

That's not all of the ingredients, but you definitely want to avoid any corn gluten or wheat gluten. That's hard on their guts, and chicken meal and the preserved animal fat aren't exactly quality ingredients either.

Trust me... I'm not SUPER healthy on cat food. These brands are still a far cry from homopathic or organic, but the common brands - Meow Mix, Friskies, Purina, etc. - are actually NOT that great for animals.
The breeder we got our cat from was trying to get me to buy REALLY expensive stuff, made her own wet food from scratch, and gave her cats bottled water (even though I saw her give her TODDLER tap water!)

Oh, no!  Not Cheerios!  My dd LOVES Cheerios!  And I'm on WIC, they don't cover the off-brand fake Cheerios.  :(  If I'm getting it for free, am I really giving Nestlee any money?

I... don't know?
I would assume so, but I don't know for sure.
Either way, the more that leave store shelves, the more they will buy and ship.

WIC also does LIFE cereal, don't they?

well ick.... I just started getting into organic and havn't really given much thought to my cats food but now I feel kinda bad :-/ that lady however sounds a little too extreme. I hate bottled water I think it's a waste, half of the brands out there are just tap water with minerals added anyways.
