For over 20 years, Nestle Waters' business operations in Thailand have produced high-quality drinking water that meets Nestle's global standards to satisfy Thai consumers' demands for water they can trust for themselves and their families."

According to Mr. Luca Chioda, Business Executive Officer – Waters, Nestle (Thai) Ltd., "We invested over 1,800 million baht to build the Nestle Pure Life Surat Thani Factory, our second production facility in Thailand for high-quality drinking water. We are creating value for the community with a focus on environmental sustainability, using state-of-the-art technology that minimizes water consumption and an efficient logistics network to improve environmental performance.

"The new Nestle Pure Life Surat Thani Factory is 170,000 square meters including the production area, warehousing, offices, and utility services. It will produce Nestle Pure Life in 0.33L, 0.6L, and 1.5L sizes. We also place importance on water management as part of Nestle's long-term commitment to environmental sustainability. The new factory features advanced VSEP (Vibratory Shear Enhanced Membrane Processing) technology that increases water recovery while reducing water consumption for the entire production process. As a distribution hub for the South, the Surat Thani factory will improve environmental performance as it shortens transport distance by 3 million km per year, which benefits the environment. We also are bringing benefits to the community, offering employment to the local community and contributing to the economy of the South of Thailand.

The Youth Water Guardian project, a collaboration between Nestle Waters and the World Wide Fund for Nature (WWF), educates school children and communities about water resource management, while our 'I am doing it' project teaches children to recycle plastic bottles.

"The new Nestle Pure Life Surat Thani Factory will provide high-quality drinking water trusted by all family members to enhance their quality of life and contribute to a healthier future," concluded Mr. Chioda.
