Nestlé is outraged and deeply saddened by the mistreatment of animals shown in this video. When we learned of this issue on Monday, we took swift action. We buy cheese from Foremost Farms which gets milk from the Wiese Brothers’ Farm. However, we do expect all of our suppliers and their suppliers to meet our stringent guidelines. We have advised Foremost Farms that we will not accept any cheese made with milk from the Wiese Brothers’ Farm.
Nestlé is committed to proper animal handling, and has Responsible Sourcing Guidelines in place to help ensure that our suppliers work according to the same principles and values that we do ourselves. You can find more information on our commitment to Farm Animal Welfare at www.nestle.com/csv/responsible-sourcing/animal-welfare. We will not knowingly work with companies that violate our Responsible Sourcing Guidelines.
It’s clear that as an industry we need to take all measures necessary in order to ensure proper and humane animal care and handling.
