Behind the Brands | Oxfam campaign against Kellogg & General Mills by The Good Shopping Guide | May 27, 2014 | Ethical Shopping Blog, Product Review | 0 comments We are calling for more signatures to the Oxfam petition against Kellogg & General Mills – Take five minutes & join the campaign! Tackling such problems as the injustice of land grabs, the exploitation of farmers, and the contribution to climate change by the biggest food corporations in world – companies who hold tremendous power over general food policy and its mode of production – the Oxfam Behind the Brands campaign and its supports have managed previously to pressure Mars, Nestle, Mondelez (formerly Kraft), Coca-Cola and Pepsi to change their ways regarding some of these issues. The latest Oxfam Behind the Brands campaign concerns a petition against Kellogg and General Mills – two of the biggest food and beverage companies in the world – and their contributions to climate change and the degradation of the natural environment (among other things), which many people depend on to survive and to earn a living. These makers of such popular brands as Pringles and Green Giant don’t fully disclose most of their emissions, let alone set targets to reduce them, and they do business with companies that worsen climate change by burning down forests and use polluting fertilisers. We support this campaign and are calling for more signatures to the Oxfam petition, which you can find here: http://www.behindthebrands.org/en-gb/. Together we can mount a substantial challenge against Kellogg’s and General Mills, pressuring them to clean up their supply chains and fundamentally transform their business practices. We also recommend that you regularly check out Oxfam’s Behind the Brands website in conjunction with the latest ethical research by The Good Shopping Guide, in order to keep up to date with the latest ethical research on some of the biggest companies and brands (as well as updated information regarding what alternatives you should support).
