30% of mineral water brands report non-compliant treatments in Mineral Water Sector

Bottled water manufacturers will be under the spotlight this Friday, June 7 as the Senate launches a “flash mission” to enforce quality regulations. The move comes after investigations by Le Monde and Radio France revealed that many bottled waters labeled as “spring” or “natural mineral” did not meet the required standards.

Anses, the health agency, has recommended reinforced surveillance of water catchment sites by Nestlé Waters, prompting the Swiss giant to acknowledge shortcomings in their production processes. The report noted an insufficient level of confidence and multiple findings of microbiological contamination of fecal origin.

EELV rapporteur Antoinette Guhl supports the necessity of this mission for transparency. She believes it is crucial for bottled water manufacturers to be transparent about the contents of their products, especially when it comes to water quality and safety standards. Consumers deserve to know the truth about what they are drinking and the measures being taken to ensure that it is safe for consumption.

By conducting these investigations and raising awareness, regulators can help hold companies accountable and protect public health. This flash mission is a step in the right direction towards ensuring that bottled water manufacturers adhere to quality regulations and prioritize consumer safety.
