Sound environmental and water management
FACTORY AND DISTRIBUTION CENTER:The state-of-the-art facilities in Anderson, Indiana help us to work in environmentally sustainable ways.

In March 2009, Nestlé officially opened a state-of-the art factory and distribution center in Anderson, Indiana – one of Nestlé’s largest investments.

Programme description

From the conception of the project to when we started building the facility, Nestlé wanted to minimize the impact on the environment. This includes trying to reduce our consumption of water and also looking at how we can re-use waste water.

Value to Society

We have worked with the city’s authorities to develop effective drainage systems, and even partnered with other industries in the area to conserve energy and water to ensure that we have a positive impact on the community.

Value to Nestlé

Since its opening in 2009, the plant has expanded twice, and now more than 700 employees work in the Nestlé Anderson facility, which is more than double the original headcount.

Nestle believes that it’s our duty to give back to the community. As such, we participate in numerous community activities and support several local schools in Anderson.

We are also an active supporter of United Way.
