Nestlé Waters is the world's largest producer of bottled water and uses 0.001% of the total fresh water drawn worldwide.
All Nestlé Waters water sources in Ontario are based in Wellington County where we use the water from the Grand River Watershed. From this resource, the bottled water industry only uses 0.6% of the available groundwater.
In British Columbia, Nestlé Water uses the equivalent of 0.01% of groundwater.
At Nestlé Waters Canada, our use of groundwater is even smaller than the industry average. This means that today, it takes us slightly less than 1.2 litres of water to deliver 1 litre of drinking water. By comparison, it takes 3 litres of water to produce one litre of soft drinks; 42 litres of water to produce one litre of beer; 183 litres of water to produce one 8-ounce (236 millilitres) glass of milk; and 148,000 litres of water to manufacture an automobile.
