Background on Fiji Water:
FIJI Water, bottled at the source in Viti Levu (Fiji Islands), is the second largest imported water brand in the United States. The company is headquartered in Los Angeles, CA, and operates a state of the art bottling facility in the Fiji Islands.
FIJI Water is widely considered to be the finest bottled water in the world due to its pristine source, which lies deep within a virgin ecosystem in the South Pacific and a continent away from the nearest industrialized centers. FIJI Water also offers a unique mineral profile including higher levels of silica than any other nationally distributed water. The results are a clean, smooth taste and a host of important health and nutrition benefits.
Today, FIJI Water is widely available at fine restaurants and hotels, all major retail channels including grocery and convenience, and through an innovative home delivery program. Following the success of the flagship U.S. business, FIJI Water has expanded to Canada, Mexico and the Caribbean, the United Kingdom, and Australia, where the brand’s iconic square bottle is increasingly visible at leading on-premise and retail establishments.
