As Nestlé’s head of public affairs, Christian Frutiger regularly ignores Nestlé's overexploitation of water in its bottling facilities and installations around the world. Mr. Frutiger has never publicly addressed problems with Nestlé water takings in VITTEL, France; GUELPH, Canada; or in MAINE, MICHIGAN, FLORIDA and CALIFORNIA in the United States. If Christian Frutiger can ignore his company’s problems in developed countries with well-established democratic traditions, what damage might occur in less developed, institutionally fragile countries?
