Canada’s preferred fine dining beverage lighter, safer, more convenient
TOWNSHIP OF PUSLINCH, Ontario – Nestlé Waters Canada, Canada’s marketshare-leading manufacturer and distributor of healthy beverage choices, today announced that S. Pellegrino® Sparkling Natural Mineral Water, the country’s favourite fine dining sparkling beverage, is now available in lighter, safer and more convenient 1-litre PET (polyethylene terephthalate) packaging.
S. Pellegrino Sparkling Natural Mineral Water is now available in four 100% recyclable sizes – 250ml (glass), 500ml (PET), 750ml (glass) and 1-litre (PET).
“S.Pellegrino PET bottles were developed for at-home and on the go consumption – a perfect solution with which to enjoy its sparkle and freshness everywhere,” explains Jennifer Semley-Robert, Marketing Manager, International Brands, Nestlé Waters Canada. “The PET version has been specially researched, created in the same Vichy shape of the glass to ensure that the effervescence and perfectly sized bubbles of S.Pellegrino’s unique style and personality would be immediately recognizable. The PET format will be available nation-wide, in addition to the glass format.”
The unique PET plastic packaging retains the ultimate quality of freshness and preserves the naturally carbonated bubbles. This packaging is made possible by coating the internal surface of the bottle with a thin silica film known as silica dioxide. This solution considerably limits carbonation loss.
S. Pellegrino 1-litre Sparkling Natural Mineral Water is available at leading retailers and restaurateurs across Canada at a suggested list price of $1.79.
