1. Kit-Kat and Rolo, although manufactured by The Hershey Company in the United States, are licensed from Nestlé.

  2. Furthermore, the Kraft Pizza Line (DiGiorno, Tombstone, and the California Pizza Kitchen line), have been acquired by Nestlé in 2010.

  3. I have been boycotting Nestle for many,many years,I started in the early 80’s when I found out about the baby formula issue in third world countries,and I’ve passed the info along to anyone who would listen and still do.Despicable company!!!

  4. Thank you for this but you’re missing all the skinny cow products

  5. I live in Israel, and here they have a lot of Nestle products. Nestle also owns about half of Osem, the biggest food manufacturer in Israel. Luckily I found a supermarket that doesn’t carry any Nestle or Osem products. I can’t remember the name of the supermarket, but their logo is a shopping cart with “1/2? next to it; they’re in Rishon LeZion and you can see it from the highway. I also found this handy link for whenever I shop somewhere else:

    and for the lady having a hard time giving up her Diet Coke: look up “Aspartame poisoning”, that should motivate you! good luck!

  6. I didn’t read through all the comments but you can add Zephyrhills water to your list.

  7. Unless i am mistaken i believe that the “Rowntrees” brand name are also owned by nestle, they make sweeties such as fruit gums and fruit pastels, and jelly/jello.

  8. Nestle owned cosmetics:

    Body shop
    Helena rubenstein
    La-Roche posey

  9. Nestle may not the most compassionate company or one best deserving of your patronage. But boycotting bottled water (from California) right now is probably a very bad idea.

    Please for the sake of California in this terrible time, please consider thoughtfully what I have to say – because I am right.

    A boycott on bottled water will in all likelihood not result in any reduction in water usage in California by Nestle. But another approach will. And it is that other approach that should be promoted instead of a boycott.

    If you want to boycott Nestle’s other products, fine. Do it! But please don’t boycott their water – at least, not right now.

    Here’s why:

    The market for bottled water is fairly static and doesn’t change much. Those who fear city water and those who buy extra water as a security measure against social or natural disaster are not going to limit their purchases. Those who prefer bottled water are going to buy it anyway.

    In fact, Nestle would probably welcome a boycott. They sell more than $11 billion worth of bottled water around the world each year. They own more than 70 of the world’s leading bottled water brands.

    If you boycott Nestle, they will simply leverage their out-of-state market share to drive-down bottled water prices inside California. This lowering of prices, combined with the force of a boycott would drive many smaller bottled water companies in California out-of-business. And that would be very good for Nestle. It will enable Nestle to capture that share of the market inside the state, which would necessitate them using even more water to meet the new increased demand, resulting from the larger market share. This is what a boycott would accomplish – Nestle bottling even more water than they do now.

    The only way this could possibly reduce water consumption by Nestle, is if Nestle’s bottled water production is somehow more efficient than the aggregate consumption of those companies who lost business to Nestle’s increased market-share. But a 12oz bottle of water, is still just a 12oz bottle of water. So the only reasonable thing that can be expected to be recovered in that case, would be lost (or waste) water. But even then, it’s still just trading one company’s water usage (for sale, for profit) for another.

    Since the demand for bottled water is not likely to change and the unintended consequences of trying to ham-handedly limit demand rather than stop the flow is, both dubious and very likely counter-productive, another measure is needed.

    There is one and it is a very simple one: An export tax.

    If Sacramento will simply impose an export tax on all bottled water sold outside the state, then companies like Nestle will be forced to raise prices on that exported water to cover the cost of the export tax.

    This will cause them to become less competitive outside California. They will lose part of that market-share and as a result, other non-California bottle water companies fill that void in the market outside California with lower prices than Nestle. Nestle will then be forced by their own need to remain competitive, to reduce production of bottled water from California (they can get it elsewhere, they’re big enough) to meet the constraints of the lower demand their smaller market share will imply.

    This alone has the dynamic necessary to reduce water usage by Nestle.

    The proper solution here, if one is needed, is simply to tax bottled water exports. California should probably be attempting to limit water exports at this point anyway. It is obvious that we need the water here, more than we need to be selling what precious little we have to other states or other countries, simply because a company like Nestle can provide California water for less than other out-of-state producers.

    In the end; it is the California legislature that determines where the water goes. Whether it’s to farms, to cities, into the ocean to preserve a species of fish, or to business – it is the state legislature that has the responsibility to act.

    And if they’re afraid of saying the word “tax”, then maybe that’s because they’ve abused the tool so much in the past, that they’ve lost sight of what a tax is really meant to accomplish!

  10. Besides making our kids sick, polluting with un-recyclable wrappers you now are taking California’s water and selling it for profit. You sell our water in poison plastic bottles, that end up in our oceans.

  11. Also tombstone , jacks, and digorno pizzas

  12. My boyfriend and I have both decided to go in and do a full boycott. We realize that this will be difficult considering that we where unaware as to how much nestle owns.

    But we are willing to help. And have started today.

  13. Thank you for posting the products. I work in a major store and have come to notice how many products are produced/distributed by Nestle. San Pellegrino drinks were among the more recent ones I noticed. Most of the candies are those which I wouldn’t buy anyway because I find them distasteful. It’s hard to fight such a battle in which the corporation hides its resources and assets.

  14. Hi, I have a genuine question, not meant to be sarcastic or troll-ish. I agree that Nestle is one of the most evil corporations in the world today. But what does a boycott accomplish? I applaud your moral sensibilities, I am just asking the question.

    If a million people boycott Nestle, it won’t affect their bottom line. It’s possible it may close down a few factories, but that won’t make a dent in their 11 billion dollar per year profit, it will just put people like you and me out of work. So my question again is, what does a boycott accomplish? Thanks.
