Lidl announces new UK bottling site

Lidl has announced the launch of a new bottling plant in Derby which has begun supplying to its stores across the UK.

Capable of producing up to 380 million bottles per year, the MEG Derby facility will bottle water and make a variety of soft drinks.

The plant is part of Schwarz Produktion, the umbrella brand of the Schwarz Group’s production companies. MEG is one of Germany’s leading mineral water and soft drink manufacturers. The new plant marks its first venture into the UK.

Lidl said the move will simplify transport logistics and significantly reduce the distance the products travel to stores. The plant will create around 90 jobs in the local community.

Richard Bourns, chief commercial officer at Lidl, said: “This new venture with MEG Derby Ltd. marks a significant milestone in our commitment to improving efficiency, reducing our impact on the environment and providing our customers with great quality products at the lowest possible prices.

“Bringing production of this key product closer to home makes sense and aligns with Lidl GB’s vision of contributing positively to the local community and economy.”
