Bottled water may not be well-liked, but it is one of the most popular drinks among consumers. This is where Ryan Eammons saw his big opportunity. A big hole in the market was waiting to be filled by a company that has a trifecta of socially conscious components. He nailed all three. Ryan created a sustainable product with unique health benefits as well as environmentally friendly packaging that gives back to communities in need.
Plenty of people in the industry are taking Eammons seriously. His waiakea water company has grown 4000 percent since he founded it in 2012. He was 22 years old at the time. Learn more about Waiakea Water: https://www.facebook.com/Waiakea/
The yearly growth rate was 170 percent. The company went from 2,304 cases to 122,400 cases sold annually. This was over the course of three and a half years. This success came as the result of local distributors and accounts signing on quickly, followed by bigger, national-scale players, such as Whole Foods.
According to Organic Authority, since its launch in 2012, Waiakea Water announced a 5,000 percent growth. The premium bottled water brand has added its product to nearly 2,000 stores in 30 U.S. states. It was founded on a triple bottom line platform, which focused on sustainability, health, and charitable initiatives. The company is launching a new manufacturing facility in Hawaii in order to meet growing international demand.
Part of Waiakea’s mission is to encourage consumers to “drink ethically”. They are in partnership with Pump Aid and donate 650 liters of clean water for every liter sold. The charitable contributions are only one-third of the Waiakea’s success. In addition to this, they tout a naturally alkaline, mineral-rich, electrolyte-packed product. This product is sustainably sourced from one of the purest places on the planet. It is packaged entirely from recycled (rPET) bottles.
As mentioned earlier, Waiakea spring water has seen an annual growth of 170 percent. The company is now valued at over $10 million. This premium bottled water is currently available in premier chains around the country. This includes Wawa and Whole Foods. It is also beginning to expand internationally.
