The Grand Rapids Press has this update on Nestle’s plans for additional bottling plants in Michigan:
A Nestle spokeswoman said Friday no sites are “on the immediate horizon” after the company has abandoned its plan to pump spring water from a location near the White River’s headwaters.
But don’t rule out future investigations, she added.
“We have made a substantial investment in Michigan, and our brand continues to grow,” said spokeswoman Deborah Muchmore. “As that continues, we will be looking at additional sources of natural spring water that help us provide what consumers are looking for.”
Nestle Waters North America Inc. officials said studies show the water at a Monroe Township site is of a different mineral composition than that currently sold under the company’s Ice Mountain label.
