After Lidl, also Nestlé removes Christian cross from Greek yogurt packaging

The world’s largest food and beverage company Nestlé has removed a Christian cross from its Greek yogurt packaging representing an orthodox church in the Greek island of Santorini. The decision reminds the one previously done by supermarket giant Lidl ‘not to hurt sensibility of other religions’.

The picture was taken in a Belgian supermarket in Brussels

It is not the first time Christian symbols are hidden or are criticised not to hurt the sensibility of other religion:

  • In Uk a market trader has been banned from having a stall after selling Knights Templar coffee mugs – in case they upset Muslims. Tina Gayle, 57 was ordered to remove the £6 mugs from her stall after Charnwood Borough Council received a complaint they were offensive (Metro);
  • In Germany,  art paintings in Karlsruhe subway created polemics because they were too Christians;
  • In UK schools are removing “before and after Christ” from the calendar to avoid offending non-Christians;
  • French transport network wanted to ban posters supporting persecuted Christians;
  • In Italy, school visit to museum was forbidden because the sacred art could upset non-catholic students;
  • Italian anchorwoman criticised for wearing a crucifix on air.
