While the negotiations with the various aspects of the joint venture with the Mengniu were being taken up the Danone camp was haunted by the ghosts of other joint ventures all over the world that were seemingly coming apart. The Indonesia case was reported by the Guardian in February 2013 wherein Danone was accused of plying the midwives with gifts for promoting their formula baby milk. Danone had immediately reiterated that they had replaced that particular scheme with training programs for the midwives. Thus, what would have been blown out of all proportion, if given the opportunity, was drastically saved. The Indonesian doctors had accused the fact that Danone was selling baby milk formula in such a rapid manner that would easily threaten the lives of the infants as they could die of acute diarrhea and could even succumb to malnutrition. Similarly, in June 2013 Danone was again in the eye of a controversy. There were innumerable allegations being made that the Danone stocks of powdered baby milk were being hyped in Turkey. This was being done on the basis of a false advertisement reporting the acceptance of the WHO and the UNICEF for promoting the sales of the particular milk formula. The long and short of the facts being brought to light was that the WHO and the UNICEF both demanded that their name be removed from the campaign with immediate effect. Then there was also the special request that their logos that the Danone campaign had been flaunting with impunity should also be removed.
