Nestlé Waters North America said it is “disappointed” by the court decision

Nestlé Waters North America has said it is “disappointed” by a court’s decision that found the firm in breach of an agreement with Oklahoma-based bottler Eureka Water.

Nestle is understood to have been ordered to pay the bottled water firm US$14.2m after a US court found it had failed to award Eureka royalties and discounted pricing on the Ozarka bottled water brand, as agreed between the two firms.

Eureka Water Co filed the suit against Nestle Waters North America in 2007.

A spokesperson for Nestle Waters told just-drinks today (20 August): “We were disappointed by the jury's decision and have not made any further decisions about our legal position. There remain a few outstanding decisions to be made by the judge and for that reason we are not commenting further.”
