Nestlé Waters has lined up a new water bottling plant in the US.

The US arm of food and drink giant Nestlé confirmed to just-drinks yesterday (6 September) that it will spend US$32m on the brownfield site, located just outside Indianapolis.

The 215,000 sq. ft unit will exclusively produce Nestlé's Pure Life purified bottled water, and will start production next year with two bottling lines. The site will have a capacity of 1m bottles a day, with the potential to double in size to four bottling lines in the future, the spokesperson said.

The Indianapolis unit will be the 13th Nestlé in the US which manufactures the water brand, the spokesperson noted. The company has 23 bottling facilities in total around the company.

The facility will be operational from early next year.
