Nestlé Waters North America Response to Proposed Extraction Tax Bills in Florida

To Press Releases listDec 4, 2019

Similar legislation has been proposed and rejected in the past, and we continue to find such proposals without scientific merit, harmful to Florida’s economic competitiveness, and even discriminatory, in that they solely focus on one particular water using industry in the state. At Nestlé Waters North America, we are proud of the more than 900 good paying jobs we create in Florida, and we know our investment and commitment is extremely important to the individuals, families, and Florida-based companies we support.

We are also proud of our proven track record of managing our spring sources responsibly and for long-term sustainability.  Florida has comprehensive groundwater withdrawal regulations, which we welcome, and will continue to meet.
