Nestl wins two awards for quality, performance

PUSLINCH TWP. - Nestlé Waters Canada announced last week that its bottling facility has achieved Excellence  in Manufacturing standing from the Canadian Bottled Water Association (CBWA) as well as Supply Chain of the Year and Logistics Excellence recognition from its parent, Nestlé Waters North America.

The Puslinch plant shared its Supply Chain of the Year and Logistics Excellence recognition with its sister plant in Hope, British Columbia. The award recognizes superior performance across a number of indicators, including cost-management, overall productivity, overall performance, quality and safety.

The logistics award recog-nizes exemplary performance in the areas of logistics and transportation. This is the first time the Canadian organization has won this award.

The CBWA model code is a quality assurance program with more extensive requirements than federal and provincial authorities demand. Beyond federal and provincial regulations and regular annual inspections, association bottlers are subject to a third level of regulation involving independent inspections, water testing and analysis, and adherence to the CBWA Model Code.

As a condition of membership, the company must pass an annual, unannounced plant inspection administered by an independent, internationally-recognized organization. That inspection audits quality and testing records, reviews all areas of plant operation from source through finished product and checks adherence to the CBWA Model Code and its code of ethics,

A second condition of membership is that bottlers pass an annual water analysis administered by an independent government-certified laboratory and regularly conduct microbial testing by qualified personnel.

“We are extremely proud of these achievements as they confirm the quality of our manufacturing processes and, ultimately, the quality of our products,” said John Zupo, President, Nestlé Waters Canada. “It is through rigorous testing and adherence to high standards such as this that consumers can have confidence that we are producing and distributing a high-quality, healthy beverage choice.”

Established in 1970, Nestlé Waters Canada is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Nestlé Waters North America of Greenwich, Connecticut. With headquarters in the Township of Puslinch, bottling facilities in Hope, British Columbia, and Puslinch and distribution facilities in Chilliwack, British Columbia; Puslinch and Laval, Quebec, approximately 450 employees support a network of more than 145 retailers across Canada.
