Fonterra commits Facebook suicide to avoid answering questions about rainforest destroying milk


Fonterra commits Facebook suicide
Greenpeace says Fonterra has committed Facebook suicide because it was unable to answer questions posted on the site about its palm kernel feed.

But Fonterra has countered "they've never had an official Facebook page" and it doesn't know who was running the one that was bombed with questions.

On the Facebook page there have been many comments that urge the dairy producer to stop importing palm kernel.


Fonterra is lying through their teeth, I've been to their facebook site, the entire site was about the products Fonteera sell, how that could have been set up randomly by someone else is just bullshit, they've pulled the site because it opened up a front of critical questions about rainforest destroying kernel feed for their dairy industry, lying about shutting it down and pretending they didn't set it up is just so pathetic you understand how they got so burnt in the Chinese milk scandal.

While Fonteera lie about having a facebook account, the questions about feeding their cows rainforest destroying kernal feed mount while the boss at Fonteera gets caught out using abortion milk practices.

If Fonteera want to be a market leader they must be a better proponent for corporate responsibility.

Hey you can hardly blame Fonterra, how about blaming everyone in the world who demands a litre a fresh milk on their breakfast per family every morning at a low price.

"Yess you can blame Fonterra"

Yeah right. And I can just imagine the hue and outcry from the general public if they changed their production methods and had to put up their prices.
The fact is people want cheap products everyday and they will always want them. Just because it's bad for the environment, well most people don't actually care, they just want cheap stuff.
It's a sad fact, which I wish wasn't true, but it is.

If people want to actually do something about it they would have to boycott fonterra products and buy more expensive environmentally friendly dairy products out there. And they ARE out there. But guess what? Most people don't buy them cos they don't give a shit. They just want cheap stuff. Fact.

Have you seen how popular cage eggs are? Cheap bacon? Everyone knows the condition those poor animals live in, but they don't care because they want CHEAP product.

FFS, we the public are not that addicted to low prices that we're prepared to put up with every hideous little practice that the farming industry would foist upon us.

And that just shows how naive you are I'm afraid.
Yes SOME of the public are willing to do something about it. MOST of them aren't.
How can you deny that?
There is a reason that the MAJORITY of clothing is made in sweat shops. Low prices.
There is a reason why most corporate environmental practices are dodgy. Low prices.

Price is the driving factor in almost all of the general publics purchases. The majority of people (those on lower wages) don't have the luxury of paying higher prices for "fair trade" goods.

For good or ill, this is a fact and I don't know how you can deny it.

If you want to talk about price , we in NZ pay the same premium price Fonterra gets for its dairy in Europe anyway.
