British Bottled Water Producers Member To Supply The British Family Fayre
|◄ ◄ Return to Press Office|
With just over three weeks to go, British Bottled Water Producers (BBWP) has been able to ensure healthy hydration for visitors to the second British Family Fayre http://www.britishfamilyfayre.co.uk/ on 30 August 2014.
"When British Bottled Water Producers (BBWP) received a call from Emily Bradshaw of ‘the British Family', famous for her family's ‘buying British for a year' challenge, we were delighted to help and thrilled that our member Wenlock Spring Water stepped in to supply the event with its fine bottled water", says Jo Jacobius, BBWP's Founder and Director.
Emily Bradshaw said: "It is always great to find organisations and companies to work with us that are doing what we try to do - getting over the complacency and knowing the provenance of what it is we buy".
Jo Jacobius said: "British bottled waters sell well but all too often British retailers, pubs, cafes and restaurants don't stock British waters even when they pride themselves on selling other locally sourced products. Despite this, production grew to 1,194 million litres (1.9bn) in 2013 and locally-produced waters continue to account for an enormous proportion of the total: according to the latest figures from Zenith International, 1,120 million litres of UK-produced bottled water were consumed in the UK in 2013. In total, UK production was 1.9 billion litres".
In just under ten years (1994 - end 2013) the UK total UK bottled water market, including water coolers and imported waters, has grown from just 690 million litres to just over 2.3 billion litres, according to research experts Zenith International.

Jo Jacobius, adds: "As a nation we now drink more bottled water than fruit juices/nectars, wine or spirits. We are delighted that the thousands of visitors to the British Family Fayre will be able to enjoy Wenlock Spring Water sourced in Shropshire".
The event is held in Westerham, Kent from 11am - 6pm. For more about Wenlock Spring Water and other British waters, visit http://www.britishbottledwater.org/best-of-british.asp
