Nestlé's quality assurance of microplastics in bottled water
Micro-plastics are small plastic pieces less than 5mm long that we can find everywhere – in the air we breathe, in the food we eat and in the water.
At Nestlé, consumer safety is our top priority, and we have tested our products for micro-plastics since 2015 using state-of-the-art devices and techniques.
So far, our testing has not detected micro-plastics beyond trace level in our food and beverages.
We welcome further research on the possible effects of micro-plastic consumption on human health, and are happy to offer our expertise to improve understanding of this issue.
