HIGHLAND SPRING TO ENTER WORLD TOP 25
Highland Spring’s agreement to purchase Greencore’s Campsie Springs and Blaen Twyni operations, should put it in the world top 25 packaged water producers by volume. This is a fitting accomplishment for a business celebrating its 30th anniversary in a market that is returning to growth. It is all the more remarkable, given the early scepticism of British consumers about paying for bottled water at all. Having previously bought the Gleneagles and Speyside Glenlivet brands, Highland Spring will also gain UK market leadership by volume and stronger relationships with many of the leading UK supermarket groups. At Zenith, we are especially pleased because Highland Spring will be our host at next year’s Global Bottled Water Congress and UK Bottled Water Industry Conference from 1-4 November at Gleneagles.
