What is more encouraging for a startup than being ranked among the established brands? So far, 2017 has been the best year for Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water—a company that prides itself in providing the world’s greenest, healthiest, and most charitable premium water brand on the planet. The Inc. Magazine ranked Waiakea 414 out of 5000 American companies considered to be the fastest growing. Waiakea grew by 1059% in the past three years. The Inc. Magazine will honor Waiakea in an October 10, 2017, conference that will be held in California. Ryan Emmons, the company CEO, was delighted by the inclusion of Waiakea in the list.
Founded by Ryan Emmons in 2012, Waiakea has carved out a niche for itself in the beverage industry as the most revolutionary water company. The company operations are carried out in consideration of three pillars: health, environment, and ethical issues. Waiakea is not only concerned with providing healthy bottled water to its consumers but also conserving the environment, and assisting the less fortunate members of the society. Usually, the company is involved in reforestation efforts meant to protect the environment from which Waiakea sources its water. The company is set to use fully biodegradable water packaging water bottles later this year. Also, the company has been at the forefront of reducing harmful emissions to the environment by consulting the best emission control companies to improve its processes.
The concern for health, environment, and society as a whole by Waiakea has attracted the attention of many professional bodies. Waiakea has received numerous awards in honor of its unparalleled efforts to be the most forward-thinking bottled water company of the 21st Century. Waiakea is the pioneer American bottled water company to be awarded a carbon neutral certification. Other awards that Waiakea has received are dedicated to their innovativeness, social responsibility, packaging design, and quality products.
What a better way to give back to the society than to enable people to access clean and safe water? Waiakea has been praised for its donations of 650 liters for every one liter of water purchased from them. The company has extended its philanthropic efforts to some African countries.
