Remove Nestle Nutrition Institute speakers from honorary & board positions

This petition had 2,631 supporters

The Nestle Nutrition Institute held their 90th Nestle Nutrition Institute Workshop in Switzerland from October 30 to November 1, 2017. Promoted on Facebook and Twitter, the event was designed to positively position the Nestle brand to health professionals and the general public.

Several prominent breastfeeding and human milk researchers spoke at the event, thereby offering their own reputations and credibility to the brand whose egregious infant formula and baby food marketing practices have been heavily documented for decades.

No organization who claims to promote and protect breastfeeding can do so while speakers who support Nestle's insidious marketing sit on their boards or in honorary positions.

We call for the following:

- Academy of Breastfeeding Medicine to remove Dr. Ruth Lawrence from their Board of Directors

- La Leche League International to remove Dr. Ruth Lawrence and Dr. Paula Meier from the Health Advisory Council

- International Society for Research in Human Milk and Lactation (ISRHML) to remove Lars Bode (current President of ISRHML) and Sharon Donovan (President elect of ISRHML)
