Nestlé Waters NA response to criticism we are bottling water for profit in Michigan
How do you respond to criticism that your company is attempting to undermine public water utilities in Michigan so that you can bottle more water for profit?
This is simply not true. We support consumer choice and encourage the consumption of water, whether bottled or from the tap. Bottled water does not compete with tap water as the major source of drinking water for any population. It is also an important source of drinking water when tap water infrastructure is temporarily unavailable, such as in the wake of natural disasters or disruptions to municipal water supplies.
