TAMPA, Fla., Oct. 26, 2021 /PRNewswire/ - Primo Water Corporation (NYSE: PRMW) (TSX: PRMW) ("Primo"), a leading provider of sustainable drinking water solutions in North America and Europe, today announced four recognitions earned at the 2021 Global Water Drinks Awards presented by Zenith Global.
The industry's only Global Water Drinks Awards are designed to celebrate excellence and innovation across every category of the packaged water industry. The awards were presented at the 18th Global Water Drinks Conference which is designed for industry leaders, suppliers, customers, and advisers, and provides a complete overview of the latest market trends, innovations and issues. Celebrating excellence and innovation across the global water drinks industry, the 7th annual awards attracted over 165 entries, with participation from every continent worldwide.
Primo was awarded four recognitions:
Winner – Best Flavored Water – Key Lime Twist Finalist – Best Flavored Water – Blackberry Pomegranate Finalist – Best Flavored Water – White Peach
Mountain Valley Spring Water has been naturally free-flowing for thousands of years. Its sacred source is tucked deep in the pristine wilderness of the Ouachita Mountains, where we've been bottling it in glass to preserve its award-winning, mineral-rich taste since 1871.
Our sparkling essences preserve the natural minerals of the source with a touch of effervescent goodness and natural fruit essences in three refreshing flavors: Blackberry Pomegranate, Key Lime Twist and White Peach. Mountain Valley sparkling essences are a thirst-quenching favorite of chefs and mixologists alike as well as the discerning water consumer.
Winner – Best Technology Innovation – Aqua Barista
In the past, beverage consumers didn't have much choice about their home and office beverage dispensers. They could choose a hot-and-cold water dispenser, and they could choose a separate coffee maker. The AquaBarista provides an affordable, innovative and streamlined option for multiple beverage choices in a sleek design.
"We are honored to be recognized for four of our outstanding products, celebrating innovation and our investment in providing our customers a unique portfolio of sustainable drinking water solutions," said Tom Harrington, Chief Executive Officer of Primo.
