Ice River Springs has been selected to receive Grocery Headquarters magazine’s 2017 Private Label Trailblazer Award. This award recognizes innovation within the private label category and is designed to honor those companies and organizations that have had the most impact on the supermarket industry this year.
We are proud to be labeled by Grocery Headquarters magazine as a “…leading innovator in environmental sustainability while providing consumers with better-for-you products.”
According to the GH magazine popularity of private label products among consumers has increased. “In recent years, retailers have started relying more heavily on their private label programs, but the exceptional companies behind the labels are what really drive the success of these programs,” states the article “Praise for Private Label”.
This award recognizes the growing importance of sustainability.
“Our closed-loop recycling plant is the major point of differentiation for the company,” says co-owner Sandy Gott. “It makes us the only North American bottler capable of producing 100 percent recycled content bottles in a closed-loop system. We have implemented processes to minimize our carbon footprint: to avoid trips with empty trucks, recycled materials are brought to the recycling facility on the same trucks that have just delivered shipments of water to urban areas.”
Grocery Headquaters magazine features Ice River Springs in January issue
Another feature in the January issue of Grocery Headquarters magazine has an article titled “The Boon in Bottled Water” that explains how bottled water is becoming more popular as a healthy alternative to sugary drinks, pop and juices. We are proud to be recognized as one of the leading forces in sustainability as our bottles are made from 100% recycled plastic and the move to healthier lifestyles.
