The UK arm of Nestle Waters is to invest GBP35m (US$54.8m) in the construction of a facility to produce lightweight bottles for its Buxton and Nestle Pure Life mineral waters in the country.

The bottling and warehousing plant, based in Buxton, Derbyshire, will produce what Nestle Waters claims to be “the lightest weight water bottles produced in the UK”. The factory is set to open in the spring and will make bottles containing around 25% less PET plastic across all still formats, the firm said today (22 November).

The lightweight bottles will launch across Buxton Natural Mineral Water 25cl, 50cl, 75cl and 1-litre formats, and Nestlé Pure Life 33cl and 50cl formats.

The environmental credentials will appear on updated packaging for both brands, which will include a new shape bottle.

"This significant investment clearly demonstrates our commitment to ensuring the category remains relevant for our customers and consumers," said Nestle Waters UK's country manager, Paolo Sangiorgi.

Last month, Nestle Waters recorded an 11.8% drop in nine-month group sales, hurt by competition in its North America division.
