Nestlé Opens New £35 Million Bottling Plant

Nestlé Opens New £35 Million Bottling Plant

Nestlé is continuing to invest in Europe with the inauguration of a new £35 million (over SFr49 million) water bottling facility in the United Kingdom. The Nestlé Waters factory in the town of Buxton, which bottles Buxton natural mineral water and Nestlé Pure Life spring water, is the latest in a series of investments the company has made in Europe over the last two years.

These include a £200 million investment to transform its Product Technology Centre for confectionery in York, UK in 2012. In the same year, Nestlé also invested SFr54 million to extend its Purina factory in Hungary, SFr300 million to build a new Nespresso factory in Switzerland, and SFr265 million in a new Nescafe Dolce Gusto factory in Germany.

“The Buxton factory is an excellent example of how we are continuing to invest in Europe despite tough economic conditions,” says Paul Bulcke, chief executive of Nestlé. “This factory will contribute to accelerate the development of our bottled water activities and illustrate our capacity for innovation in production facilities via an approach that combines strong and sustainable production efficiency with outstanding environmental performances.”

Bottled water plays an important role in Nestlé’s nutrition, health and wellness strategy emphasizing that water should be the preferred healthy hydration option and is an important factor against the growing problem of obesity.

The new factory is Nestlé’s most recent multi-million pound investment in the UK. The company recently invested £40 million over the past few years to create a European centre of excellence for Nescafe Cappuccino in Cumbria.

Last year, Nestlé also announced a £310 million investment in its coffee manufacturing business in Tutbury, Derbyshire, creating 425 new jobs.
