Winking Seal Beer Co., a leading Vietnam-based craft beverage company, has partnered with TBC-Ball Beverage Can Viet-nam Limited and Ball Asia Pacific Limited to launch beWater – an environmentally-friendly canned water product.
Joining the movement to reduce single-use plastic, beWater cans are made from infinitely recyclable aluminum, making them the most cost-effective and sustainable option compared to glass, cartons and single-use plastic.
A convenient alternative to plastic and glass bottled water used in hotels, food & beverage outlets, and at outdoor festivals, beWater is manufactured in Vietnam using advanced reverse osmosis and UV light treatment for purification. The water is then enhanced with natural minerals for a fresh and clean taste.
Winking Seal Beer Co. has signed agreements with leading international hotel groups and F&B outlets to help phase out plastic bottles and reduce overall environmental footprint. Im-mediate plans include launching an international distribution presence.
Mark Nerney, Winking Seal Beer Co.’s Co-founder and General Director, comments on the partnership, “We are extremely proud to announce our partnership with TBC-Ball, who share our vision to make water better, environmentally friendly and convenient to enjoy. Alongside our launch partner Sailing Club Leisure Group, they were instrumental in making beWater an instant success.”
“With aluminum packaging we take a life cycle view of the entire product journey,” explains Bjoern Kulmann, Sustainability Director at Ball Corporation. “Aluminum is monomaterial and can be easily sorted and reused an infinite number of times without losing quality. Aluminum, as permanent material retains its value throughout the recycling process, meaning that it can be kept in circulation indefinitely without becoming waste and ending up in the ocean or in landfills.”
“Together with Winking Seal Beer Co., Ball wants to promote can recycling and has installed on-site can collection stations at all beWater locations,” adds Wannaros Tantranont, Regional Sustainability Director at Ball Asia Pacific Limited. “This way we offer our hospitality and F&B partners a way to raise awareness of sustainable packaging solutions that help resolve the plastic waste problem.” AFJ
