Report Shows Progress In Reducing Water Consumption Among UK Food/Drink Manufacturers

July 26, 2013: 12:00 AM EST
A report from the Federation House Commitment, a voluntary agreement among British food and beverage companies to reduce water use in the country, says that major manufacturers have together cut their water use significantly. Coca-Cola, Heinz, Nestlé and others have reduced water consumption by 16.1 percent in the five years ending in 2012. The voluntary agreement, launched in 2008, seeks to reduce water use in food/drink manufacturing at least 20 percent by 2020. Participating food and drink companies have also agreed to reduce water use per metric ton of product by 20.9 percent from the 2007 baseline level.
