Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water, the first and unique triple bottom line premium bottled water, was named as one of the Best Water Brand of 2017. The announcement was made by 10 Best Water. Waiakea is well known for its taste, purity and commitment to social good and conservation. PR Newswire states that Waiakea water came in the second place but took the first place in its own category of the Best Volcanic Water of 2017. It managed to surpass other household names like Voss, Fiji, Icelandic Glacial, SmartWater and Evian in both its own category and overall as a bottled water brand.
This marks the third subsequent year that Waiakea has appeared among the top on the top brands’ list. Despite the fact that Waiakea is an emerging brand, 10 Best Water took note that it can be counted among the most dominant bottled water brands present in the world today. According to Ryan Emmons, the founder of Waiakea, the company’s goal from the start was to bring changes to the whole bottled water industry.
The company wanted to bring the changes from within by setting a good example for the greater CPG industry. He added that the continued recognition of the company’s philanthropic and environmental initiatives proved that the company had a product that has the power to bring about some positive change.

Waiakea as a Conduit for Major Transformation
Waiakea water was the first ever U.S. bottled water to attain CarbonNeutral certification and it is fast becoming a channel to bring about major transformation in the beverages industry. These changes are amplified by the company’s sustainable sourcing, 100% RPET packaging and reforestation initiatives.
According to Global News Wire, Waiakea water further received another approval from the beverage and food critics present at Grubstreet who awarded the brand first place in the ‘Best Tasting’ category. Emmons summed up by stating that all these awards proved the point that consumer preferences are fast shifting towards products that are more sustainable, healthier and ethically-conscious. He added that the future of his brand and other likeminded brands was bright and his team was looking to see what would happen next.
About Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water
Waiakea water is sourced from Hawaii through both rain and snowmelt from the pristine peak of Mauna Loa volcano. Waiakea water is filtered naturally via thousands of feet of permeable volcanic rocks before it is bottled. This produces naturally alkaline, electrolyte-rich and most delicious waters. About 5% of all the revenue the company collects is directed to nonprofits and local community programs.
