bottling has rapidly become one of the most popular and profitable
business areas in the water treatment industry.

Format Water Bottling is a relatively new concept in the water
industry, a development which came to fruition during the Yuppie
generation and which currently relies principally on the Yuppie
and X-Generations for its continued growth and financial successes.
dramatic turn these consumers have recently been taking AWAY from
carbonated beverages toward healthier"juices" and "natural"
drinks bodes well for alternative beverages such as drinking water.
bottlers have begun looking deeper into the demographics of the
marketplace to identify so-called "niche" market products---products
which will attract the health conscious Yuppie and X generations---products
which can demand a premium price(and subsequent profit margin)
and yet utilize existing, inexpensive capital equipment(i.e. bottling
the concept of a portable, personal water supply or "individuality"
in water service plus the chic, environmentally correct features
of recyclable small format bottles has created an entire new industry
of water processing and distribution.
industry has become highly profitable by putting a clean, good
tasting and refreshing beverage---water--- in an individual's
hand whether on the job, at school, at the gym or at the discotheque.
a virtual horde of bottling companies is packing this business
area with a wide range of drinking waters in both small and large
format containers as well as vending apparatus and bottled delivery
systems. California, the Sun Belt and now the Eastern seaboard
are beset with scores of bottling enterprises pumping spring and
purified water into all types of outlets.
massive assault on the drinking water marketplace has created
a highly competitive situation for all concerned: prices are depressed
and the market is saturated with near-identical drinking waters,
with profit margins at both water vending machines and store-shelves
would be safe to say that in many geographic areas, the current
bottled water market is approaching a "maturity" or
"saturation" phase where multiple entities are competing
for virtually the same demographic groups with essentially identical
products(except for product labels and bottle styles/shapes)..
has all occurred simultaneously with increasing media coverage
of a rapid worsening of the purity and safety of public water
supplies. The health-conscious and upward mobile Yuppie and X-Generations
found the small format bottle to be a perfect fit for their health-conscious
lifestyle and social environments.
is well to remember that this conventional bottled water industry
is not immune from water contamination problems. Any number of
studies have concluded that bottled water(in small or large format
configurations) is many times not any cleaner or purer than local
tap water - and in some cases may be even worse.

the rigorous sanitation procedures which must be applied to the
small format products.
wide variety of water products can be processed by small format
bottling operations, ranging from simple spring water to purified

determine what type of water bottling process will meet your needs;
the type of water you are bottling and to what extent you plan
to be "self-supporting" in this business,namely producing
your own PET bottles, specialty packaging, etc.
it may be helpful for to think hard about where you buy your bottling
equipment. More and more bottling equipment are being manufactured
overseas(India, China, Taiwan, Japan, Korea) with inferior components,
no professional service support and poor or unavailable parts.

family tried to opened a Water Industry in East Africa. They
spend a lot of money on the machines. They went and purchase
the machines in India. Some guys from the company went
back to East Africa to restore the machines and didn't know
what they were doing, and didn't go through with it, also because
some parts were missing. Since I have some family in San Jose,or
I might be going there, I was wondering if I could meet up with
you, or talk to you on the phone.
