Target: President of Nestlé USA Confections & Snacks, Doreen Ida
Goal: Thank Nestlé for removing artificial colorings and flavors from its candy products in the United States.
Nestlé has made great advances to help protect the health of Americans. Recently, the company announced that it will be removing all artificial colorings and flavors from its candy products that are sold in the United States.
Many have fought for years to urge candy companies to remove artificial dyes from their products, including several petitions on ForceChange. Petroleum-based artificial dyes used in many different candies are proven to have harmful side effects when ingested. These artificial colorings are especially troublesome because they have also been linked to hyperactivity in children.
While other companies may continue to use these harmful dyes in their products, the public can rest assured they are receiving safer products when choosing Nestlé. Nestlé is the first candy manufacturer to make the decision to use all-natural ingredients.
Please help us thank Nestlé for its monumental decision. Support is needed to show just how important Nestlé’s decision is and to show other companies that removing harmful artificial colorings is a benefit for everyone.
Dear Ms. Ida,
It is well known that many candies and snacks are not exactly healthy or good for you. However, the addition of artificial colorings and flavors give these sweets new and harmful side effects. It has been noted that artificial dyes used in candies like M&Ms have been linked to hyperactivity in children. This is especially problematic since children make up a significant percentage of consumers for candy products.
There is no place for these harmful dyes in the candies and snacks America’s children are consuming. Therefore it is important to note the significance of Nestlé’s decision to remove artificial colorings and flavors from its candy products in the United States.
This enormous decision exemplifies the care and attention Nestlé has for the health and wellness of Americans. Nestlé is setting a great example for other candy companies in America. One could only hope that they will follow in your footsteps and help ensure the safety and health of all their consumers.
Being the first candy manufacturer to announce the transition to all-natural ingredients is extremely important and influential. Thank you for your efforts to protect the health and well-being of your U.S. customers by removing dangerous dyes and chemicals from all Nestlé products.
[Your Name Here]
