Nestle Hides Behind a ‘Sovereign Nation’ in Desert Bottled Water Controversy

(From Leon Kaye in Triple Pundit) Any credibility the company had was instantly gone with the CEO said water isn’t a human right. “Nestlé yet again finds itself in another bottled water controversy. One of the great marketing scams of the past generation, bottled water has been a financial windfall for Nestle and many other food and beverage companies. Despite most of the U.S. having one of the safest drinking water infrastructures on the globe, bottling companies have made a mint convincing consumers they need bottled water. Never mind the excessive cost, the plastic waste and fuel wasted hauling heavy crates of water across the country — these companies and trade associations disingenuously position bottled water as “consumer choice,” and a fight against obesity.”
