                     Nestlé Water Policy
As a leading food and beverage company, water is a key priority for Nestlé,
whether it's for manufacturing Nestlé's food products, for their preparation by
consumers or for bottled waters. To help assure a long term, high quality,
adequate water supply, Nestlé supports the sustainable use of water. That is
why we strictly control the use of water in the Company's activities and strive
for continuous improvement in the management of water resources.

The Nestlé Water Policy compliments the Nestlé Policy on the Environment
and includes the following:

   1. Water is essential for nutrition. Nestlé, through its Perrier Vittel
      Company, provides a wide range of pure, safe, wholesome and
      convenient bottled waters of high quality to meet the increasing and
      varied needs of consumers throughout the world. Protection of springs
      and their surroundings is of primary importance in this endeavour.
   2. Nestlé directs its worldwide research and development network towards:

       The innovation and renovation of its products and processes,
        including manufacturing methods that minimize water consumption
        and waste water generation; and
       Scientific research conducted at the Perrier Vittel Institut de l'Eau
        that is centered on the physiological and quality aspects of water.

   3. Agricultural raw materials are dependent on water. Although Nestlé is
      generally not involved in the production of raw materials, it supports
      and encourages sustainable, environmentally sound farming methods,
      including best possible practices for water use and conservation, and
      gene technology. As a raw material for food processing, water must
      satisfy both local legal requirements and internal quality criteria.
   4. The Nestlé Environmental Management System (NEMS) ensures the
      continuous improvement of Nestlé's environmental performance,
      including management of water resources: objectives are established,
      progress is monitored, results are checked and corrective and
      preventative actions are implemented.
   5. Nestlé strives to achieve optimal performance in its manufacturing
      activities, including water management:
           Without compromise to the safety and quality of its products,
              fresh water use is reduced as much as possible and, wherever
              feasible, water is reused and recycled; and
          Used water is treated and returned to the environment according
            to local legislation; where none exist, internal Nestlé standards
            are applied.
   6. As part of its broader commitment towards the good of the community,
      Nestlé:
                    Promotes, in co-operation with health authorities, the
                      importance of using safe water for food and drink
                      preparation to consumers; and
                    Provides education, supports initiatives and fosters
                      awareness on the importance of water resource
                      conservation among employees, governments, local
                      communities, schools, industry, consumers and other

    MARKETING PHILOSPHY FOR NESTLE PURE
                LIFE WATER:
 Nestle Pure Life is a premium drinking water, produced to the highest standard of safety and
 purity. Their aim is to provide customer with pure drinking water on suitable prices make the
 product as convenient as possible. According to their claim that they provide the best food
 through out the world. For Nestle Pure Life they adopted the societal and marketing concept.
OBJECTIVES OF NESTLE PURE LIFE :
The main objective for the SBU was to be number one selling bottled-mineral water in
Pakistan. This objective was hoped to be accomplished by setting the following further
sub-objectives.

   1)   Safety:
To provide the consumers with a safe drinking water: Consumers want reassurance. The
Nestle name on the product is an assurance of quality for the consumer. Also related to
safety is the fact that the water is captured in a safety environment and undergoes
rigorous treatment to meet universal quality standards. The water is de-mineralized by
distillation. Mineral salts are then added, in accordance
with a strict formula developed. The bottling line is also subject to strict sanitary
regulations: an air-controlled room houses the filing machine, and the bottles and caps are
sterilized. Quality is a continual process and is monitored during each production phase -
some 200 controls. Packaging also receives special attention. Each Nestle Pure Life bottle
and the 5-litre PET jug have a special cap and tamper-resistant band. This way, the
consumer can tell immediately whether the bottle has come straight from the plant or if it
has been tampered with.


2).To   offer consumers a healthy product:
Remineralization let Nestle offer consumers a balanced, refreshing and healthy product,
the product's second key objective. The formula developed for Nestle Pure Life contains
minerals such as calcium, which is essential for bone development; magnesium, which is
recommended for muscles and the central nervous system; bicarbonates, which are
particularly useful for digestion; and sodium, which helps regulate hydration in the
human body. Overall mineralization is light (200 mg per liter) and suitable for the whole
family.


3) To offer an affordable mineral water:
As well as being pure, safe, healthy water, Nestle Pure Life is affordable and convenient.
No matter what the format, Nestle Pure Life is sold consistently at popular prices
affordable for a large portion of the population. The 1.5-L bottle is offered for Rs. 22 --
cheaper than most of the other water brands of the same size. The 0.5 L bottle was
initially offered for Rs. 8 but now is sold for Rs. 12.The increase in price has been caused
mainly due to inflation and competition.
4) To make the product as convenient as possible:
 This was the product's fourth objective. Due to its well-balanced mineral content, Nestle
Pure Life can also be used for cooking and to prepare tea or coffee. The brand is available
in several formats suited to a variety of consumption patterns (50cl, 1.5 litre, 5 litre).The
idea is clear: to be close to the consumer.In other words, Nestle Pure Life must be
available in all sales and restaurants outlets and anywhere else consumers young and old
are likely to buy or drink water. These objectives can be very well matched with the
mission statement of the organization. Consider the following mission statement:
“Nestle is dedicated to providing the best foods to people throughout their day,
throughout their lives, throughout the world. With our unique experience
of anticipating consumers' needs and Creating solutions, Nestle contributes to your well-
being and enhances your quality of life. ”Referring to the first part of the mission
statement, Nestle did provide the consumers with the best bottled-mineral water, as it is
number one in the bottled-water market in Pakistan. According to their claim that they
provide the best food throughout the world, Nestlé Pure Life is available throughout
Pakistan in a number of outlets because of the intensive distribution strategy of the firm.
Secondly, Nestle was very successful in identifying the need for safe and pure drinking
water, and thus came with the wonderful solution of providing the Nestle Pure Life water.
Referring to Nestlé Pure Life, it has all the essential minerals, which a human body
needs, as well as, it is pure and safe. Thus it improves one aspect of our lives. By
drinking healthy water, people can escape different fatal diseases like Hepatitis B and C
(one of the causes of which being the contaminated water).Ultimately, the quality of life
is enhanced as portrayed by the mission statement.
