I just got sent this video of a Sanlu advertising campaign:
Sanlu’s September 2008 TV commercial for Western media, with the copy “For the past 15 years we have enough sale volume covered the entire sahara desert”. The ‘volume’ refers to milk powder.
Meanwhile Sue Kedgley has been asking some pertinent questions:
While we welcome the fact that the Prime Minister contacted Chinese authorities, as we believe Fonterra should have done a month earlier, we cannot understand why the Government did not act immediately when its embassy was informed on August 14.
The Green Party calls on the Government to explain why its embassy sat on the information for 17 days before informing authorities in New Zealand, and then why the Government failed to act for a further eight days before it informed Chinese officials. What happened between August 14 and September 8?
