Is this company discriminating?
      09/13/11 07:56 PM

I sent an email to a company that sells a Balanced Nutrient dense meal. I wanted to make a bulk order of this meal so that I can offer it to people living with HIV/AIDS in prisons and rural communities. We also asked this company if they can give out hampers. Which we can hand out. This is what they said, " I understand you want to make an impact on peoples lives but we also concerned that our product if marketed incorrectly could be stigmatized as an AIDS product instead of a balanced nutrient dense food"

Now I know many people who are HIV positive and others with AIDS who receive these packs from government hospitals others buy them from the supermarket. Am I crazy to feel we are being discriminated? We buy the product but the company seems to me like it doesn't want to be be associated or 'stigmatised as an AIDS products"

Am I over reacting?
