“Why should we sell to you when you commodify a human right?”

That was just one of dozens of questions representatives from Nestle Waters fielded during an information session Monday night on the water bottling facility the company is looking into building in Spring or Benner township in Centre County.

Others focused on the environment, jobs and the company’s track record.

Nestle points to the positive economic impact the $50 million facility would have on the area. That includes 50 well-paying jobs at the bottling plant, along with tax revenues.
