Nestlé Waters has opened a new manufacturing plant in Abaji, Nigeria. The 25 million CHF factory will produce Nestlé Pure Life water.
It is Nestlé’s most modern water processing facility in Central and West Africa.
The facility will complement Nestlé Waters’ existing factory at Agbara in the Ogun State.
As well as processing water the new site will be home to a Technical Training Centre for Nigerian engineering students.
And as part of our commitments to improve access to water and sanitation across our value chain, we will provide free access to clean drinking water from taps at the gates of the new factory to an estimated 1,000 local people. This follows similar initiatives at our Agbara and Douala factories.
During the inauguration ceremony, Dharnesh Gordhon, Managing Director at Nestlé Nigeria, underlined Nestlé’s firm commitment to the development of the country: “Our company has been present in Nigeria for 55 years. We are committed to continue to bring significant value to society through local sourcing, the creation of jobs and by offering high-quality, nutritious foods and beverages to the Nigerian population.”
