Hawaiian Springs expands to U.S.
COSTA MESA, Calif. Hawaiian Springs LLC, an esteemed worldwide natural water brand, announced their expansion to the United States.
The natural artesian water comes from the Keau’au waters, deemed some of the purest waters in the world, according to the U.S. Geological Survey.
“We believe Hawaiian Springs will be incredibly well received by discerning, health-conscious consumers throughout the U.S.,” said Rick Hadley, chairman and CEO of Hawaiian Springs. “While other processed waters can leach minerals and nutrients from the body, Hawaiian Springs natural water is filtered through 13 thousand feet of volcanic rock and is among the purest in the world.”
Hawaiian Springs water can be found at chief food retail stores including Whole Foods and Mother’s Market, and will soon be available at other stores throughout the United States.
