George Clooney left 'saddened' as company he fronts comes under fire for 'child labour'

The actor has been the face of the company since 2013.

He reportedly said at a press conference at the time: “I’m very comfortable with commercials. I’ve done them most of my life.

“But I would find myself at a press conference, or perhaps at a film festival and suddenly there’d be some people challenging me about Nespresso’s sustainability.

“I thought if I was going to be involved on a long-term basis with this company, and I like them very much, I should find out what they’re doing and what they should and could be held responsible for.”
