Nirvana Spring Water Files Lawsuit Against Nestlé for Breach of NDA and Anti-Competitive Practices

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.
