According to Mr. Luca Chioda, Business Executive Officer – Waters, Nestle (Thai) Ltd., "We invested over 1,800 million baht to build the Nestle Pure Life Surat Thani Factory, our second production facility in Thailand for high-quality drinking water. We are creating value for the community with a focus on environmental sustainability, using state-of-the-art technology that minimizes water consumption and an efficient logistics network to improve environmental performance.

"The new Nestle Pure Life Surat Thani Factory is 170,000 square meters including the production area, warehousing, offices, and utility services. It will produce Nestle Pure Life in 0.33L, 0.6L, and 1.5L sizes. We also place importance on water management as part of Nestle's long-term commitment to environmental sustainability. The new factory features advanced VSEP (Vibratory Shear Enhanced Membrane Processing) technology that increases water recovery while reducing water consumption for the entire production process. As a distribution hub for the South, the Surat Thani factory will improve environmental performance as it shortens transport distance by 3 million km per year, which benefits the environment. We also are bringing benefits to the community, offering employment to the local community and contributing to the economy of the South of Thailand.
