Furthermore, Slades has its own blow-moulding bottle plant so it can provide customers with the best possible price and needs.
What Makes Slades the Best Choice for Spring Water Manufacturers?
For over 150 years, Slades have been producing bottled beverages for Australian families. From coconut water to ginger beer, carbonated soft drinks to the best spring water, Slades is now and has always been the reliable choice for the best tasting drinks. As a spring water manufacturer, we believe our customers get the best tasting water available in Australia.
Our Australian, family-owned and run business spans several brands, each with the same ethic. We work to create the best tasting drinks that do more for the environment and are better for you as a customer. This ideal has driven us to investigate alternative packaging, like Tetra Pak, glass bottles and recyclable single-use plastics. We strive every day to take on new challenges – and this is why we are trusted to not only create the best drinks in Australia, but also to create beverage packaging< for other brands in our top of the range bottling plant. But, why is our spring water different? Why are we the best spring water manufacturing company in Australia?
Ballarat Springs Spring Water
Cottonwood Springs water is filtered through volcanic rock. The natural springs near Ballarat, Victoria come from deep inside an extinct volcano – and this is how our water gets the distinctive taste profile that our customers love.
As spring water manufacturers, it is important that our water has a clean, refreshing, and distinctive taste – and that is why we choose to bottle it at source from Mt Warrenheip. The water that seeps through the high mineral content rocks is pumped through a sealed unit free of any human contact, making it pure, clean, and delicious.
The rocks around the extinct volcano have a unique mineral content, with the highest known silica content in Australia. Balanced with magnesium, our water has a silky, smooth taste with just a hint of sweetness that our customers love.
The Importance of Spring Water
We know that proper hydration is one of the best ways to keep healthy – the media, fitness gurus, diet companies and nutrition consultants all hammer home that drinking water is best for your health.
What is more important for you to know is why that is.
Hydration is especially important in high heat. We lose so much fluid through sweating, and this is more apparent if you are exercising. Dehydration can have a noticeable effect if you lose as little as 2% of your body’s water content – problems such as reduced motivation, fatigue, and even impaired brain function. It can even negatively affect your mood!
Good hydration is also important for your health. Studies have shown that ample fluid intake can reduce and relieve headaches, encourage bowel movements, and promotes good gut health.
Weight loss can be aided by good fluid intake – diet and fitness coaches will often tell you to drink water if you feel hungry, because it can help you feel satiated. Studies show that drinking water can also speed up your metabolism, too!
Here at Slades, we believe in the unique power of water, and that is why we pride ourselves on being the best spring water manufacturers in Australia.
