RUSSIA: Nestlé Waters to build Leningrad plant

By | 13 July 2006

Nestlé Waters is poised to begin building a plant to produce bottled water in Russia's Leningrad region, just-drinks understands.

The French group is understood to be ready to reveal the start of the project, with a formal announcement expected by the end of next week.

Russian business daily Vedomosti yesterday (12 July) claimed that the plant, to be based in the city of Vyborg near the Finnish border and north of St. Petersburg, would have an annual capacity of 300m litres and would employ around 200 people.

A Nestlé Waters spokesperson refused to comment on the reports when contacted by just-drinks today. The company, whose brands include Vittel and Perrier, owns a plant in Moscow that supplies water for St. Petersburg.
