“Currently, we have eight strategically located co-packing facilities with ample capacity to support demand. In most cases, we are the largest customer of our co-packers nationwide. As such, our co-packers have increased dedicated line-time across our facilities. In addition, some of the plants and supply chain providers are running 24/7.

“We also plan to bring on a new plant in May to give us additional capacity to meet the upcoming summer demand. With bottled water considered an ‘essential’ item, all our facilities remain fully operational, and we are committed to playing our role in thwarting this global pandemic.”

The Alkaline Water Company produces bottled alkaline water, flavoured-infused waters and CBD infused products. It sells them under various brands, including Alkaline88, A88 Infused and A88CBD.
