Do you know how to turn ordinary water into a billion dollar business. In Switzerland theres a company which has developed the art to perfection, Nestle. This company dominates the global business in bottled water.
On Thursday, 19th June at W+K Shanghai we will be screening ‘Bottled Life: Nestle’s Business with Bottled Water’, a film that documents the booming business with bottled water, by focusing on the global leader in this lucrative multi-billion dollar market – namely, the Nestlé corporation in Switzerland.
There will be a entrance fee/donation of 50RMB that includes beer, soft drinks, snacks and donations to the NPO Greenlife Project - an organizations that is planting trees in different parts of China to reduce desertification and help offset China’s greenhouse gas emissions.
Swiss journalist Res Gehringer has investigated this money-making phenomena. Nestlé refused to cooperate, on the pretext that it was “the wrong film at the wrong time”. So Gehringer went on a journey of exploration, researching the story in the USA, Nigeria and Pakistan. His journey into the world of bottled water reveals the schemes and strategies of the most powerful food and beverage company on our planet.
