Nestlé Waters has announced a SFr25 million (€21 million) modernisation of its bottling site at Henniez, Switzerland. The investment will allow the Henniez site to continue to meet demand for its popular mineral water. Bottled water is a high-growth category for Nestlé.

Production at Henniez will become more flexible and innovative in order to meet current and future consumer trends. The project will see two older mineral water glass bottling lines replaced by one new, modern line. It will also set up a new production facility for flavoured beverages and juices.

The move will also lower the traffic burden for Henniez, as production at a secondary site in the village will move to the main facility. This will not lead to any dismissals, with Nestlé Waters Switzerland continuing to employ around 270 people.

As part of its commitment to the environment and the region, Nestlé Waters Switzerland is helping protect more than 2400 hectares around the Henniez source. The ECO-Broye water stewardship programme brings together around 70 farmers, local authorities and regional business to protect the local water resources and promote biodiversity in the region.

“Thanks to this investment, we reinforce the Henniez production site and equip it for the future development of our strong brands,” says Alessandro Rigoni, General Director of Nestlé Waters Switzerland. “We have established an exemplary partnership with the most important actors of the region, notable with the ECO-Broye environmental project, which protects Henniez’ water resources. And we will continue on this path in the future.”
