How do you manage healthy hydration in your global portfolio?

Water makes up over 90% of our product portfolio. Nestlé Waters offers waters as well as beverages that meet consumers expectations in terms of daily occasional pleasure.

We believe that plain water (whether bottled or tap) should be the preferred choice when it comes to daily hydration, as it doesn’t add any calories to the body.
To tackle the worldwide obesity rates that have doubled since 1980 according to the World Health Organization (WHO), several scientific associations support a reduction of sugar- sweetened beverages and then recommend drinking water.

Portability, taste and convenience of bottled water must be highlighted as it helps people to meet their hydration needs throughout their active lifestyle: at work, at school, during sports activities, etc.

Nestlé is committed to continuing to reduce the level of sugars in its food and beverage products and help consumers having daily intake of sugar no higher than those recommended by the WHO and other leading international and national authorities. Our current policy target was to further reduce the content of sugars by an average of at least 10% over three years (2014-2016) in those products that do not meet the Nestlé Nutritional Foundation criteria for sugars as de ned in the Nestlé Nutritional Pro ling System.

Did you know?

Bottled water is THE choice when it comes to daily hydration.
An experiment at a university in the U.S. showed that when bottled water is removed from a vending machine, with a water fountain close by, students were more likely to choose a sugar-sweetened beverage instead of water from the water fountain (Source: Nestlé Waters North America, 2012).
