Nestle's Polish unit has opened a new factory in the south

Nestlé Waters has begun operations at a new bottling facility in Poland.

The Home & Office Delivery (HOD) factory, situated in Rzeniszow in the south of the country, was opened today (19 July) and will support the development of the company’s Dar Natury bottled water brand by providing new water resource capacities close to the country's main distribution centre areas.

The 36,000 square-metre facility, which has been built at a cost of EUR5m (US$6.5m), will produce around 40m litres per year and should create around 45 jobs, the firm said.

At the official opening ceremony, Nestlé Waters[' CEO, John Harris, was joined by Pytlak Wlodzimierz, business country manager of Nestlé Water Direct in Poland, as well as the Mayor of Rzeniszow.

Nestlé Waters Poland markets local brands such as Naleczowianka, Nestlé Aquarel in the retail segment, and Dar Natury and Nestlé Aquarel in the HOD category.
