“We are pleased to be partnering with Great State Beverages," said Rodger Cohen, co-founder of Native Waters. “Our agreement allow many more environmentally-conscious customers in New England an alternative to traditional bottled water."
Boston, MA (PRWEB) June 3, 2010
Native Waters, a Massachusetts company that produces locally sourced natural spring water in earth-friendly PET plastic bottles, will now be widely available across Eastern Massachusetts, including Metropolitan Boston, and New Hampshire thanks to a distribution agreement with Great State Beverages of Hooksett, New Hampshire and their subsidiary Blue Coast Beverages of Mattapoisett, Massachusetts.
Great State Beverages is one of the leading beverage distributors in New England. The company will offer Native Water to its customers in Eastern Massachusetts and New Hampshire, including convenience stores, supermarkets, restaurants and other venues.
“Native Water is a perfect addition to our line of premium, non-alcoholic beverages,” said Ron Fournier, vice president of sales at Great State Beverages. “Our customers are looking for sustainable products that meet the demands of their environmentally-conscious customers. High quality brands like Native Water have a significant opportunity in our market.”
Native Water is bottled in ENSO Bottles, a biodegradable and recyclable PET plastic bottle. Made from 25% recycled plastic the bottles are produced with Ecopure™, an organic compound added to the plastic manufacturing process that allows the bottles to be metabolized and neutralized on a microbial level, completely breaking down the plastic. ENSO bottles maintain the same physical properties and strengths as existing PET plastic bottles yet provide a more shelf stable and practical solution than starch-based PLA materials and oxo-degradable plastics. The bottles are biodegradable in both anaerobic and aerobic environments and can also be successfully mixed with standard PET plastic recycling.
“We are pleased to be partnering with Great State Beverages, a strong distributor with a reputation for building premier brands,” said Rodger Cohen, vice president and co-founder of Native Waters. “Our agreement presents a significant growth opportunity for Native Water and will allow many more environmentally-conscious customers in Eastern Massachusetts and New Hampshire an alternative to traditional bottled-water.”
In addition to using the ENSO bottle, Native Waters sources its natural water locally, minimizing its carbon footprint by eliminating long trucking routes for distribution. Native Water is sourced from springs in the heart of the Berkshire Mountains in Western Massachusetts, both in Chester, and Southfield, MA. The water flows naturally through sand, clay and rocks, and provides Native Waters with spring water which is exceedingly low in mineral and dissolved solid content.
Native Water is available in both a 500 ml and 700 ml size. Native Water is currently available at a variety of retailers, educational institutions and specialty stores across New England, including the Rhode Island School of Design, Keene State College, Middlebury College, Savenor’s Market, Formaggio’s Kitchen, Lenox School District, Richmond Consolidate School, Springfield College, and many other locations.
