Nestle Waters hosts open house in Hope

A guided tour of the local bottling plant planned for Sept. 22

Nestle Waters is giving residents an opportunity to look inside its operations in Hope.

An open house on Sept. 22 will feature a guided tour of the local bottling plant, free barbecue, product sampling, water education, face-painting, and a caricature artist.

“It’s a relaxed, family-oriented and fun opportunity to get a grass-roots understanding about a major employer in the community, learn even more about water and socialize with friends, neighbours and family over great food and beverages,” said John B. Challinor II, director of corporate affairs.

“Nestle Waters fully recognizes the corporate leadership and corporate responsibility roles it plays in the Hope and Chilliwack communities as well as the surrounding area. Hosting community members, business and political leaders as well as other key stakeholders – including its neighbours, suppliers and the families of its employees – at its plant creates a strong foundation for a quality of dialogue to occur that will encourage continued development of Hope and environs as a great place to live, work and play.”

Nestle Waters is the largest private-sector employer in the area and has been in operation here since purchasing Aberfoyle Springs in 2000.

The open house will take place rain or shine on Sept. 22, from 12-4 p.m.

Nestle Waters is located at 66700 Othello Rd.
