Nestle Pakistan, stakeholders working on water conservation

KARACHI: Nestle Pakistan is working with agriculture experts, government and local farmers to find ways to replace flood irrigation with drip irrigation, which could lead to water conservation in the range of 40 to 60 percent.

“Since agriculture accounts for over 90 percent of fresh water consumption in Pakistan, with nearly 50 percent wasted due to poor irrigation practices, it is important we work with farmers on curtailing water wastage,” a Nestle spokesperson told newsmen during a visit of its facilities and milk supply chain in Punjab.
