Project Overview

At our dairy factories in Brazil, we reuse the water extracted from milk to save resources. Milk is composed of 80% water and, during the production of powdered (Ninho and Molico) and condensed (Moça®) milk products, we need to remove this water. But, instead of being disposed of, the whey is evaporated and treated, so it can be used to cool down equipment and for cleaning. In 2016, this reused water represented an avoidance of 10% of water withdrawal across 11 of Nestlé B...

At our dairy factories in Brazil, we reuse the water extracted from milk to save resources. Milk is composed of 80% water and, during the production of powdered (Ninho and Molico) and condensed (Moça®) milk products, we need to remove this water. But, instead of being disposed of, the whey is evaporated and treated, so it can be used to cool down equipment and for cleaning. In 2016, this reused water represented an avoidance of 10% of water withdrawal across 11 of Nestlé Brazil’s dairy factories. We also benefit from directing the extracted whey to feed boilers and produce energy. Two factories in Brazil Market achieved the concept of Zero Water, when all the factory demand is supplied by the milk water reuse.Beyond initiatives of work to achieve water efficiency and sustainability across operations, Nestlé Brazil have been developing a Water Stewardship Plan through a Steering Committee that consolidate action on:Leading the Water Work group at UNCG Brazil Network, engaging with companies from many different economy sectors to the implementation of CEO Water Mandate.Engaging with suppliers, especially in agriculture – define and start to implement action to improve water management in our upstream supply chain for high-priority locations. Develop of Guideline of Hydric Good Practices to milk farmers in partnership of EMBRAPA (Empresa Brasileira de Pesquisa Agropecuária).The cost provided consider the investment needed in water saving technologies to reduce water withdrawal as done in Lagos de Moreno Mexico.
