Nestle Waters Spain has inaugurated a new water plant in Herrera del Duque near Badajoz, western Spain, a company spokesman has confirmed to just-drinks.

Nestle has invested €16m to build the 9,000 square-metre factory, which will produce 150m litres of water per year.

Nestle said the facility is one of its "most innovative and modern" production plants in Europe.

The factory will help the Spanish unit of the Swiss food giant boost bottled-water production and achieve its aim of increasing 2005 sales by 28% to €79m.

Nestle said it will continue to expand its Aquarel brand in Spain's fast-growing water market. Aquarel's sales totalled €22m last year, making it the firm's key earner.

Nestle Waters Spain produced 334m bottles last year, giving the company a 10% market share in Spain.
