Waiakea Water was founded in 2012 by Mr. Ryan Emmons and has seen tremendous growth in the brand ever since. According to Mr. Emmons, the company has grown by over 5000% in the last 4 years. He attributes this exceptional performance to the company’s commitment to excellence and sustainability.
The bottled water is now available in more than 25 US states and the company is now looking to go international as the demand for its product has greatly increased and gone beyond the US borders.
The Secret behind Waiakea’s Success
Mr. Emmons acknowledges the fact that it was not easy to start and grow his business, especially considering the fact that he was just 18 at the time while most of the other players in the field were old folks with years of experience running businesses. He struggled to get the company on its feet but his discipline and excellent strategy finally paid off.
For instance, in 2015, the company donated 500 million liters of water to drought-stricken regions in Africa. It is actively involved in the activities of many other charity organizations.One of these is Pump Aid, an organization that strives to improve the lives of residents of drought-stricken regions in Africa and Asia by providing them with clean water that is safe for consumption.
Waiakea water is also mindful of the environment and therefore recycles bottles and uses them to package its water. In fact, the brand is certified Carbon Neutral. This greatly reduces its carbon footprint and has made it a favorite among consumers who are passionate about the environment.
It has therefore contributed greatly to the company’s growth. Waiakea water is sourced from the Waiakea spring on the Mauna Loa Volcano. It has an amazing taste and is gaining popularity all over the world. The water contains minerals such as calcium, iron and potassium among others, making it way healthier than other brands of bottled water.
According to New You, Waiakea water is selling more than just bottled water; it is selling a premium brand that is built on strong values and a concern for the environment and the community as a whole. It is no wonder then that it is gaining popularity all over the world and continues to record outstanding performance.
With its new manufacturing branch in Hawaii, it is able to produce even more of the product and reach a wider market. It has proven to other players in the industry that doing things ethically actually pays off big time.
