IRVING, Texas, March 4, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- 7-Eleven, Inc. continues to raise the quality benchmark on its private brand portfolio with the addition of a new super-premium water imported from Iceland. Created exclusively for 7-Eleven, Skýra™ Icelandic spring water is naturally alkaline with electrolytes, a high pH (8.8) and naturally low mineral content.
Skýra water is sourced from an Icelandic spring in a government-protected nature preserve. Filtered through inert layers of lava, the water trickles deep into the ground over decades picking up soluble minerals before emerging as a naturally alkaline water. This pristine Icelandic water contains no nitrates, nickel, cadmium, uranium, phthalates or chlorine.
"Every time we develop a 7-Eleven private brand product, our goal is to exceed customers' expectations in both quality and value," said Jack Stout, 7-Eleven Senior Vice President of Merchandising and Logistics. "With Skýra, 7-Eleven is offering a premium, naturally pH-balanced water at a better value than national brands."
The super-premium water's pure and refreshing taste is a result of its origin in Iceland which is ranked as one of the cleanest countries in the world. Even its name, pronounced "skee-reh," is an Icelandic word meaning "clear" or "to clarify."
The new Skýra Icelandic spring water is exclusively available in two sizes at participating 7-Eleven® stores – 20 ounces for $1.99 and 1 liter for $2.69. For a limited time, two 1-liter bottles will be available for a promotional price of $4.
7-Eleven produces approximately 1,500 private brand items and expects sales of these proprietary packaged beverages, foods and non-food items to top $1 billion this year.
