Introduction

"Fresh From Earth
Hana Water's brand image is a quality water product, set at a competitive price.

Behind each bottle coming out of the new factory is a simple process where the water is purified and filtered as it comes out of the ground. The water and mineral quality is checked, to ensure that it meets local and international standards, then it is packaged and distributed so that it meets the customers requirements. Since the factory makes its own bottles and lids, costs are kept down a similar point is behind the transport network, where Hana do not have to rely on any outside company to distribute the water Kingdom-wide."
