Yoplait Mauritius DOES NOT contain Gelatine

The news made a buzz on social network. It all started when people posted copy of a letter allegedly from Yoplait in USA stating that Yoplait uses pork and beef gelatine in its products.

Local consumers were alarmed and expressed their concerns on social networks,  calling for boycott of Yoplait as Muslims do not eat pork and Hindus do not eat beef products.

The matter became so serious that Yoplait Maurice later issued a communiqué to clarify. 



The company, Maurilait Ltee, in an email to Iqra News, has also confirmed that it does not use any gelatine in its products in Mauritius and consumers can continue to enjoy their Yoplait without any doubt.

This incident has shown how the careless sharing of information on social networks without proper verification can cause serious prejudice to a business enterprise.

 

The letter shared on facebook. It is a letter from Yoplait in USA addressed to a US consumer.
