Nirvana Spring Water Files Lawsuit Against Nestlé for Breach of NDA and Anti-Competitive Practices
Aug 20 14
Nirvana Inc. (Nirvana) filed a lawsuit in New York State Supreme Court against Nestlé Waters North America (Nestlé) for breach of a non-disclosure agreement (NDA) and unlawful anti-competitive practices aimed at driving a small, family-owned competitor out of business. After Nestlé expressed interest in a possible acquisition of Nirvana, the two companies signed an NDA in 2012. Nestlé examined Nirvana's financial information and its natural resources, conducting aerial reconnaissance of Nirvana's property. At the same time, the legal complaint states, Nestlé and its agents were engaging in a persistent campaign of anti-competitive practices meant to weaken Nirvana or drive it out of business entirely. According to court filings, Nestlé's illegal activities included lowering prices for commercial buyers who agreed to stop carrying Nirvana's water and showing letters to supermarkets indicating that Nirvana approached Nestlé about selling itself, undermining those customer relationships. The lawsuit alleges that Nestlé even went so far as to directly pay Stew Leonard's supermarket chain in 2011 to stop carrying Nirvana spring water altogether. Nirvana initially entered discussions with Nestlé in 2005 regarding the co-packing of Nestlé's Pure Life(R) brand. That same year, Nestlé made an oral offer to buy the company, which Nirvana declined. In 2011, Nirvana transitioned from a co-packing business model to a self-branded water company and began directly capturing market share from Nestlé's Poland Spring(R) and Deer Park(R) brands. Over the last two years, during the period of Nestlé's NDA-protected intelligence gathering, Nirvana's sales have fallen dramatically.
Maine Springs Files Lawsuit against Nestle Waters North America Accuses Poland Spring of False Labeling, Business Interference
Aug 13 14
Maine Springs has taken legal action against Nestle Waters North America, seeking to resolve a legal conflict that it says has been boiling over for years. Maine Springs filed a lawsuit against Nestle in U.S. District Court, alleging the Nestle Waters North America that owns the Poland Spring brand has interfered with its business and falsely labels its Poland Spring water. Maine Springs states in its lawsuit that its efforts to sell its water have been complicated by a threat of legal action from Poland Spring. To bottle its water, federal and state law requires it identify the physical source of its water. By listing its source in Poland Spring, Maine, Maine Springs said it received threats of a trademark violation lawsuit from Nestle. Maine Springs alleges in its lawsuit that Nestle also interfered with its attempts to supply water to other bottlers, including Niagara Bottling Co. and Crystal Rock. In 2011, Maine Springs said it received a letter from Nestle. In addition to allegations that Nestle interfered with its business, Maine Springs further alleges the Poland Spring brand mislabels the source of its water and misrepresents it as 100% natural spring water.
