The French division of Nestle Waters has completed its clearout of three regional water brands

The French division of Nestlé Waters has sold another bottled water brand to the Société des Eaux Minérales d'Ogeu (SEMO).

Brittany-based Plancoët was the last of three French regional mineral water brands that made up Nestlé Waters' Société Française des Eaux Régionales (SFER) unit. The value of the transaction, which was confirmed yesterday (2 January) has not been disclosed.

In July, Nestlé Waters sold the two other brands, Val St Lambert and Carola (Eaux Minérales de Ribeauvillé) to SEMO and Belgian group Spadel, respectively.

The waters unit of Nestlé said that the divestments formed part of a strategy to re-focus on its national and international brands in France.
