Nestlé Waters has temporarily halted production at one of its factories in Dammam after one employee tested positive for COVID-19.
Saudi authorities have confirmed that there is no risk of contamination with coronavirus from packaged foods and beverages, including bottled water and the company has come forward to ensure the continuity of production at its seven factory locations in the kingdom.
It emphasised that its priority is to provide safe water to customers while implementing additional measures and the most stringent quality standards to maintain the safety of its employees, products, and customers.
The Nestlé factory in Dammam is working closely with local authorities at this time to deep clean and disinfect and will resume production as soon as possible. It is also supporting all employees during the temporary halt.
Nestlé has confirmed that all Nestlé PureLife products are safe for consumption and that all its other factories across the Kingdom continue to operate with increased safety measures and highest quality standards, delivering safe water to its customers.
