    Interesting and plausible. However, share price over 5 years doesn’t show a relationship with the positive indicators in the article. Can you comment please?

    1. Equedia says:

      Hi Rob,

      Thanks for your comment and glad to see you’re doing your own due diligence. 5 years ago, the company was over promoted and run buy a founder who was overly promotional. The Company caught a huge wave of the Alkaline water trend, but its sales didn’t match its share price. So the Company was rolled back and restructured with new management and re-capitalized – which is why I would have never invested in them at such an early stage.

      Today, now being listed on the TSX Venture, we believe its a new growth story.

    Thanks Ivan for this most interesting writing about the water industry👌🏾I have been looking for one that I could invest in so this sounds like it could be it?
    Of all your writings over the years, my opinion is this is one of your best👍

    1. Equedia says:

      Terry, thank you very much appreciate your kind words! Thank you so much for your loyal readership and we hope we can continue to keep you entertained 🙂

    I was very interested in your latest EQUEDIA article on ‘bottled water’. I am a fan of yours (as I’m sure are many others). One thing I noticed in this article is there is no mention of the source of the water – I am wondering if this is a longtime secure source, which would be very important, with increased volumes being projected and also as shipping costs are important, are there similar sources elsewhere in the world that would be available?

    1. Equedia says:

      Hi Don,

      Thanks so much for your comment. The water comes from co-packers who source the water from local sources – it’s not like natural spring water, but a proprietary process that creates water to a 8.8pH balance.

      And you are correct, shipping and logistics are one of the biggest challenges when it comes to bottled water, or any type of consumer product. That is why the Company has co-packers across the nation to alleviate the costs of freight.

      Hope this helps!

    I too am interested to know the source of this water as well as how it is bottled (packaging…)- will this company be contributing to the.overwhelming plastic garbage problem our world is currently facing? It is being reported that large corporate giants such as Nestle are going into communities and claiming rights to bottle their natural resources, greatly impacting these communities for the worse, in some cases infringing on native sacred lands and waters and in other cases even stealing water by bottling more than their allowable amount. Is this company socially responsible?? https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=9&v=udyx9u5LJeo

    1. Equedia says:

      Danielle,

      We know about Nestle outbidding the smaller guys in the Ontario community. In the case of Alkaline Water Company, they don’t require natural springs etc. for their water, and don’t infringe on native sacred land as a result – all of their water comes from co-packers who source the water in their local communities.

      Furthermore, the Company uses recycled and recyclable bottles – it would be up to the consumers to be socially responsible to recycle them.

      Hope this helps!

  5. Ryan says:

    The main issue here is that alkaline water is nothing more than an elaborate marketing scheme. There is no legitimate scientific evidence to suggest that this kind of water has any more health benefits than any other type of filtered water. In fact, our bodies are already alkaline. If they were more alkaline, we would die. The money to be made here is on whether this company can hoax enough people. Judging from the quackery that gets passed as legit science these days, there is probably a high chance of success.

    1. Equedia says:

      Hey Ryan,

      We certainly wouldn’t try and contend with “if alkaline water is good for you or not.” That will always be a topic of debate as alkaline water continues to be sold.

      Furthermore, it isn’t about hoax – the Company didn’t come up with Alkaline water stating its good for you – they simply provide what people want, and at the time, it was a massive trend. Today, sales of Alkaline water have continued and many people like it, regardless of science. We have drank Alkaline88 and there is a difference in the way it tastes and feels when drinking it – just like Fiji water has that thicker, smoother profile.

      In the end, most people – especially here in N. America – can drink water from the tap. Yet, bottled water continues to hit record numbers in sales.

      Hope this helps.

  6. RedDog says:

    The industry could evaporate suddenly if people would start making their own alkaline water. Ingredients: Add Coral Calcium Powder, Sea Salt and Baking Soda to filtered water, gets you at pH of at least 8.0. Doesn’t taste bad either. Tons of studies about alkaline vs acidic diets. I think alkaline wins my vote.

    1. Equedia says:

      Yes, for sure people could make their own alkaline water. But most people can also drink water straight from the tap in North America…yet bottled water continues to explode in sales.

      Furthermore, Alkaine88 does provide a very good price point in the premium bottled water space, often selling cheaper than most premium bottled waters and even comparable to “regular” bottled water in many cases. I have personally seen this in the stores of Walmarts in Seattle and in California.

      I think price point – in addition to good branding – is big reason why the Alkaline Water Company has seen success with the big retailers such as Walmart.

  7. Elizabeth says:

    Plastic leaching into the water? How has that been dealt with once bottles are filled with water and sit on trucks in the heat whilst being distributed?

  8. Kim Finley says:

    Hello Ivan,

    I am receiving your mails since roughly one year but to be honest, i just recently started reading them carefully.
    Your analysis and shared information on the subjects is really good, thanks so much for that!
    One of the messages was about the Alkaline Water Company and i decided to give it a go.
    I bought 1000 shares last week and as of today i have a (unrealised) profit of about $440.
    So i am very satisfied with the development of my investment and ofcourse hope that this trend will contnuw for a long time!

    Thanks again for your advice!!
    Theo
