         I prefer the statements of Johnson and Johnson and think they are more
         ideal at showing the consumers what they believe in, what they actually do,
         how they have paired their missions up with meeting the needs of the
         community, the environment, the workers, and the world as a whole. Their
         statements cover every topic, in depth, with examples, facts, figures and are
         all together more convincing than the sweeping statements (in particular
         made by Ben and Jerrys). Ben and Jerrys proclaims to have respect for
         people, Johnson and Johnson show you what they think that means and
         applies it. The in depth, well presented, well thought out policies that it has
put into action far outweight and almost ridicule those of the other two
companies. They have covered every topic professionally and fully.

Baby cereal social and ethical policies:

Products – our products are healthy nutritious, only use sustainable material
from fair trade farmers, top quality at an affordable price.

People – Whether you are a customer, a worker or an investor, you will be
treated with respect. We will listen to your opinions and promote diversity.
Our policies are worldwide and we will provide a workplace free from
discrimination and have protective measures in place for all our employees.

Environment- all of our packaging is environmentally friendly. We use the
latest technology to ensure the efficient production of our products whilst
causing the least damage to the environment. We promote recycling
initiatives and encourage all of our packaging to be recycled. Al of our
ingredients are taken from sustainable sources and purchased under fair
trade agreements.

Communities – we work with and support the communities in which we are
based and support community charities world-wide. We encourage the
development, education and productivity of communities nation-wide and
our support programmes help to ensure the communities are supported,
financed and guided in achieving their goals.

Health and safety – we have rigorous policies put in place in order to protect
our workers from injuries and hazards in the workplace. We promote health
and safety in our work places world wide and have the same high standards.

This statement covers all of the key points that I think a company should
have in order to be considered socially and ethically responsible. From
people to environment, it states that the highest care is taken in production,
the work place, and the environment to ensure the products not only benefit
the consumer, but the nation as a whole.
