The Truth About Bottled Water

As a result,
opportunities in the bottled water business are exploding. Hot trends and a more informed consumer are driving a global thirst for bottled
water: Consumers are more health conscious. Large numbers of people are avoiding high sugar, caffeine and other processed drinks and instead are buying zero-calorie bottled water.
