What is your response to false stories that Nestlé wants to privatize water from Brazil’s Guarani Aquifer?

Nestlé does not extract water from any part of the Guarani Aquifer in South America, including in Brazil.

We have no plans to do so and neither are we discussing this matter with the Brazilian authorities.

Suggestions to the contrary in stories online are incorrect. In fact, the following news outlets have published articles calling out this privatization claim as false news:

Wherever we bottle water, we conduct water resource studies and constantly monitor our withdrawals to ensure we do not negatively affect local watersheds and aquifers.

We are fully committed to water stewardship and the human right to water.
