Danone is to invest Eur6.2 million to expand capacity at its bottled water production plant at Salvetat in France. Part of the expenditure will be used to drill for new water sources, with Eur1 million a year allocated for this purpose.

 

Danone also plans to construct a new 5,000 sq m warehouse to store 3 million bottles of water produced by the site each week. Danone had already committed investment of Eur3 million last year to extend the capacity of the packaging line at Salvetat and to carry out other improvements to the operation.

 

The factory employs about thirty people and volume sales of the Salvetat brand of sparkling mineral water have risen by 28% this year. The brand currently holds15.5% of the French carbonated water market, up from 7.9% last year.
