Success Story - How Nestlé Waters implemented a green clean-in-place process
Nestlé Waters was looking for a sustainable, all-in-one solution to reduce downtime needed for a clean-in-place process.
Schneider’s EcoStruxure Clean-In-Place Advisor enabled optimization of the cleaning process at Nestlé’s Perrier factory to improve traceability, ensure compliance with regulations, and reduce operating costs.
Re: Success Story - How Nestlé Waters implemented a green clean-in-place process
Nestlé Waters is the world leader in bottled water. One of the company’s iconic sparkling water brands is Perrier, manufactured at the Vergèze factory in the south of France. The region with the famous, naturally carbonated source springs is also known for its biodiversity and well-preserved environment.
The Vergèze plant has 13 production lines and an installation comprising several hundred meters of pipes. To ensure the high quality of Perrier water, Nestlé Waters needed a clean-in-place (CIP) process that meets best-in-class standards. Traditional cleaning performed during a period of machine shutdown represented 20% of the working time of the facility and impacted operational efficiency.
Nestlé Waters was looking for a solution that would help them win back some time for production while maintaining product quality and compliance with food safety regulations.
