CanO Water

water with a purpose 

CanO Water is the new exciting range available from the essential food company and was created in response to the damaging impact that plastic bottles have on the environment.

CanO Water is known for supplying water in an aluminium can instead of the usual plastic or glass containers.  They have also created a unique can lid feature that allows you to reseal and reuse your can but does not compromise the recycling process.

The water inside the eco-friendly can is sourced from the Austrian Alps. Collected from springs, the water is first filtered through the foothills collecting minerals & electrolytes. 

Approximately 8 million tonnes of plastic ends up in the ocean every year, some plastics can take as much as 400 years to break down while others never will. CanO Water, like some of our new products introduced to the essential range; share the same core values; to supply a great product that will impact your business without harming the environment.

The aluminium packaging offers a highly recyclable alternative and has the highest recycling rate of any drink on the market. When you recycle the CanO Water can it could be back on the shelf in as little as 6 weeks.
