In the 2005 documentary, We Feed the World, then-CEO of Nestlé, the worlds largest foodstuff corporation, Peter Brabeck-Letmathe, shared some of his own views and wisdom about the world and humanity. Brabeck believes that nature is not good, that there is nothing to worry about with GMO foods, that profits matter above all else, that people should work more, and that human beings do not have a right to water.
Peter Brabeck, Chairman of Nestlé
Today, he explained, people believe that everything that comes from Nature is good, marking a large change in perception, as previously, we always learnt that Nature could be pitiless. Humanity, Brabeck stated, is now in the position of being able to provide some balance to Nature, but in spite of this we have something approaching a shibboleth that everything that comes from Nature is good. He then referenced the organic movement as an example of this thinking, premising that organic is best. But rest assured, he corrected, organic is not best. In 15 years of GMO food consumption in the United States, not one single case of illness has occurred. In spite of this, he noted, were all so uneasy about it in Europe, that something might happen to us. This view, according to Brabeck, is hypocrisy more than anything else.
Water, Brabeck correctly pointed out, is of course the most important raw material we have today in the world, but added: Its a question of whether we should privatize the normal water supply for the population. And there are two different opinions on the matter. The one opinion, which I think is extreme, is represented by the NGOs, who bang on about declaring water a public right. Brabeck elaborated on this extreme view: That means that as a human being you should have a right to water. Thats an extreme solution. The other view, and thus, the less extreme view, he explained, says that water is a foodstuff like any other, and like any other foodstuff it should have a market value. Personally I believe its better to give a foodstuff a value so that were all aware that it has its price, and then that one should take specific measures for the part of the population that has no access to this water, and there are many different possibilities there. The biggest social responsibility of any CEO, Brabeck explained:
is to maintain and ensure the successful and profitable future of his enterprise. For only if we can ensure our continued, long term existence will we be in the position to actively participate in the solution of the problems that exist in the world. Were in the position of being able to create jobs If you want to create work, you have to work yourself, not as it was in the past where existing work was distributed. If you remember the main argument for the 35-hour week was that there was a certain amount of work and it would be better if we worked less and distributed the work amongst more people. That has proved quite clearly to be wrong. If you want to create more work you have to work more yourself. And with that weve got to create a positive image of the world for people, and I see absolutely no reason why we shouldnt be positive about the future. Weve never had it so good, weve never had so much money, weve never been so healthy, weve never lived as long as we do today. We have everything we want and we still go around as if we were in mourning for something.
While watching a promotional video of a Nestlé factory in Japan, Brabeck commented, You can see how modern these factories are; highly robotized, almost no people. And of course, for someone claiming to be interested in creating jobs, there appears to be no glaring hypocrisy in praising factories with almost no people.
Brabeck has become an influential voice on issues of food and water, and not surprisingly so, considering he is chairman of the largest food service corporation on earth. Brabecks career goes back to when he was working for Nestlé in Chile in the early 1970s, when the left-leaning democratically-elected president Salvador Allende was threatening to nationalize milk production, and Nestlés Chilean operations along with it. A 1973 Chilean military coup with the support of the CIA put an end to that threat by bringing in the military dictatorship of Augusto Pinochet, who murdered thousands of Chileans and established a national security state, imposing harsh economic measures to promote the interests of elite corporate and financial interests (what later became known as neoliberalism).
