This makes me feel less inclined to be purchasing from this corporation. Corporations tend not to be ethically/people friendly given their absolute bottom line is PROFITS (watch ‘The Corporation’ a movie you can find on our Corporations pages) … in fact their legal obligation is first and foremost to their shareholders, not you or any warm, fuzzy values like supporting your kids’ employment or sharing resources. Corporations can be outright evil entities in terms of the lengths they will go to to be top dog, and if you mess with them they have bottomless bank accounts (due to their emphasis on profits) to drag you through lengthy court processes as you gradually use up all your surplus dollars and eventually go bust. The Crown is very good at this too. They used it historically to acquire vast tracts of indigenous lands, all well documented. They’re still at it. So… consider carefully which corporations you support (your NZ government is a corporation) when exercising your purchasing power.

Manuka honey exporter Comvita is being accused of chopping down forest on disputed Maori land, snubbing protocol, and driving small-scale beekeepers out of business.
Publicly listed Comvita reaped $18.5 million from its 30,000 hives last year; a sum some locals of a tiny Kaipara town 150kms northwest of Auckland say they do not want their manuka contributing to.
They want its profit to stay in the community, but say corporate beekeepers have entered Tinopai through a minority of shareholders in one Maori land block.
Opposers of the 49 new hives have initiated “trench warfare” – digging ditches and felling trees across the bush track Comvita uses to access its remote Tinopai hives.
But Comvita chief executive Scott Coulter defended its role in the local economy. “We have a majority of New Zealand-based shareholders and pay local landowners well for the use of their land,” he said.

Hear the proof for yourself what has happened with the ongoing poisoning of our forests. They are supposed to be protecting our bird life are they not? Perhaps our esteemed experts have created a new breed of bird that doesn’t sing? … check out our page called ‘NZ’s Silent Forests – Where have the birds gone? EnvirowatchRangitikei

A note from admin about commenting
This site/blog is a truth site. Our purpose is to dig below the surface stories and where present, to expose lies and corruption. We do this also by citing independent research from professional people. This is what mainstream media should be doing however media is also corporately controlled now and as we know corporations are for profits not people or environments. For that reason I reserve this venue for commenting that seeks truth also. If you are strongly pro poison, chemicals, damage to environment, damage to health etc etc your views would be best stated in mainstream media where the status quo is already firmly entrenched. Some of the people of the latter persuasion are in fact paid trolls; so desperate are the powers that be to maintain their control of opinion, they pay people to debunk truth.
So, that established, please feel free to comment without advocating any kind of violence or hatred. We are for truth and peace here.
