A Moroccan consumer boycott targeting major milk, mineral water and fuel brands, blamed for the layoff of hundreds of workers at a major dairy company, will deter foreign investment and cost jobs, the Moroccan government has warned.The government said the boycott was hurting the agricultural sector and the families of the small farmers supplying milk, a group estimated at 600,000 people.Centrale Danone said Tuesday it will reduce by 30 percent the amount of milk it collects from the 120,000 farmers who supply it, saying in an email to Reuters this was because of the boycott.Unlike the milk company, fuel and water companies have not yet announced any losses due to the boycott and have declined to comment.
