Responsible Sourcing

Responsible Sourcing from Top to Bottom


Here at Nestlé Waters North America, we take pride in practicing responsibility and ensuring quality from source to bottle. Responsible sourcing is a value that runs through our company from top to bottom. It’s a commitment that is taken seriously across Nestlé.

Sourcing Our Springs

We hire environmental experts to study water flow volumes, water quality and how well the water is replenished at a spring water site. We share information with communities and interested parties and work with local, state and federal agencies, as applicable.

Working With All Links of the Supply Chain

Nestlé works with almost 165,000 direct suppliers and 695,000 individual farmers worldwide. The Nestlé Supplier Code (“the Code”) defines the non-negotiable minimum standards that we ask our suppliers and their sub-tier suppliers (“the Supplier”) to respect and to adhere to when conducting business with Nestlé. This document helps the continued implementation of our commitment to international standards beyond our own operations, to every link of our upstream supply chain back to farms and plantations.
