Ardagh Group announces packaging agreement for Mountain Valley Spring Water glass bottles

Indianapolis (June 6, 2019)Ardagh Group, Glass – North America, a division of Ardagh Group, has signed a long-term supply agreement to be the exclusive supplier of glass bottles for Mountain Valley Spring Water. Bottling spring water since 1871, Mountain Valley was the first to deliver bottled water coast to coast for U.S. consumers.

Consumers consider glass to be the premium packaging material, making it an ideal choice for bottled water brands. According to Mintel Global New Products Database (GNPD), between 2017 and 2018, there was a 20 percent increase in bottled water products launched in glass in the U.S.

Using water that rises naturally from a spring in the Ouachita mountains, Mountain Valley chooses to bottle its award-winning premium spring and sparkling waters in glass to preserve the quality and taste. Ardagh Group manufactures Mountain Valley Spring Water’s unique green glass water bottles for its Spring Water, Sparkling Water and Sparkling Essence varieties in 333ml, 500ml, 750ml and 1L sizes.

“We are delighted to partner with Ardagh Group on this long-term supply agreement for the iconic glass water bottles that package our natural, authentic spring water,” said Stephan Williams, Director Corporate Marketing, Mountain Valley Spring Water. “After spending more than 3,500 years on its journey from the source, Mountain Valley Spring Water is committed to keeping its spring water pure, flowing and sustainable, so we can continue to bottle in glass and share with many generations to come.”

Environmental responsibility is a global concern that’s gaining momentum among today’s consumers, and the commitment to sustainable practices is one of the driving forces in the expanding glass water bottle market. In addition to its premium qualities, glass bottles are 100 percent recyclable and can be recycled endlessly without any loss in quality or purity.

“As one of the leading suppliers of inherently sustainable packaging, Ardagh Group is pleased to manufacture this collection of custom glass bottles for Mountain Valley Spring Water,” said John T Shaddox, Chief Commercial Officer for Ardagh Group’s North American Glass division. “This line of glass bottles, known for its protective qualities and environmental distinction, is the ideal packaging choice for today’s environmentally-conscious consumer.”
