Merck Joins British Bottled Water Producers

◄ ◄ Return to Press Office

British Bottled Water Producers, the trade association representing small and medium sized producers of bottled water, has announced that Merck has been accepted as a Platinum Member.

Founded in Darmstadt, Germany in 1668, Merck is the world’s oldest chemical and pharmaceutical company. The multinational company is represented in the UK as Merck Chemicals Ltd. based in Nottingham. Their portfolio of analytical products and services recently saw a significant expansion by the acquisition of the Sigma-Aldrich company and now includes, among others, products for sample preparation, reagents, solvents, standards and reference materials.

Merck’s test strips and kits, photometers and turbidimeters are dedicated to water and disinfection analysis and help accurately monitor beverage quality in compliance with international and national regulations. From A for arsenic to Z for zinc, the devices and test kits allow to analyse virtually any substance. More than 200 photometric test kits and applications are available including ultra-low measuring ranges dedicated to bottled water analysis.

Jo Jacobius, Director of British Bottled Water Producers (BBWP), said: “We are thrilled to welcome Merck to the BBWP network. British bottlers who are members of British Bottled Water Producers pride themselves on their high standards and we strive to promote excellence in water standards and safety. Merck offer equipment that is renowned in helping such companies maintain and improve their testing abilities”.

The trend towards healthy eating and drinking means that more people are buying bottled water. We're mostly made of water. Water is life-giving and vital.

In the UK we now buy more than 2 billion litres a year. As we consume more water many people naturally want to know that the water they drink is free from unwanted additives; they want to identify the source of the water; and more and more Britons want to avoid unnecessary ‘food miles’.
