Have you ever wondered who purchases bottled water? As it turns out, just about everyone does. According to the International Bottled Water Association (IBWA) and the Beverage Marketing Corporation (BMS), “Americans are drinking more bottled water than any other packaged beverage” for the first time in American history. A recent Harris poll conducted for the IBWA found that 86 percent of people polled purchase bottled water. Additionally, the BMS recently released numbers for 2016 bottled water sales. They found that there was a 10 percent increase in sales and also an 8.6 percent increase in bottled water consumption. Now, that’s a lot of bottled water.
So, what makes bottled water so popular? The answer depends on who you talk to. Bottled water offers many benefits and also has the potential to meet a wide variety of Atlanta consumer needs. The following are just a few of the features that have made bottled water popular.
With the great demand for bottled water, it is important to make sure that your Atlanta employees have access to a variety of bottled water choices during their work day. Not only will you help your employees remain hydrated during the day but their mood and focus are likely to improve if they are hydrated. A large selection of low or no sugar, flavored carbonated waters can also be a refreshing treat during a work break.
