Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water was recently declared as the Best Water Brand in 2017 by 10 Best Water. This brand is known to many because of its taste, purity, and commitment to conserving the environment. Waiakea water was given the first position as the best volcanic water in 2017 too. The brand impressed many people by surpassing some of the international household names in the industry such as Evian, SmartWater Voss, Fiji and Icelandic Glacial in most of the categories it was nominated.
Forbes said that Waiakea water has won this category for three years now. 10 Best Water Management says that although the brand is still new in the market, it can now be considered as one of the best and most influential in the international market.
Ryan Emmons, the founder and chief executive officer of Waiakea, says that the goal of his brand from the start was to change the bottled water industry. Ryan says that he wanted to alter the industry from within, developing a positive mindset in the CGP sector at the end of the day. The continued recognition of its philanthropic and environmental initiatives have shown that the company has all the power needed to bring these positive changes.
At the moment, Waiakea Water is considered to be the first brand to achieve CarbonNeutral certification in the United States. The company is slowly becoming the center for some of the primary transformation in the beverage department. This can be contributed to the reforestation initiatives in the company, one hundred percent RPET packaging, and sustainable sourcing.
According to Specialty Food, this is not the only award Waiakea water has received in the recent past. The institution was recognized by Grubstreet, one of the most popular beverages and food critics as the Best Tasting water.
In a statement to the public, the founder of the company says that the awards won by his company prove that the consumers prefer to take the water from the institution. According to him, the water is healthier, ethically conscious and more sustainable when compared to most of the brands in the market.
Waiakea water originates from the rain and snowmelt at the Big Island’s Mauna Loa Volcano. The fresh water is always filtered in hundreds of feet of volcanic rock. The water produced by the brand is considered to be very delicious. It is naturally alkaline, and it contains many electrolytes that are essential for the human body. Some revenue from the water is given to local community programs and non-profit making initiatives in the country.
