- talayawate­r.com

Lebanese manufactur­er of bottled water, Talaya Water Company, has launched the first glass water gallon. The initiative was led by Marcel Hage, founder and CEO of Talaya Water Company. Hage said, “Our main goal is to create awareness about the importance of using glass gallons for its health benefits, through maintainin­g the quality of the water and its purity.” Founded in 2009, Talaya began distributi­on in July 2012 only after having perfected its touch-free bottling method. The glass gallons can be used with any traditiona­l cooler. However, Talaya has utilized a newly designed water cooler to simplify the gallon-loading process in a mechanism modified to combine efficiency with friendline­ss. Talaya has also encased the gallons within reinforced baskets which protects them. Hage said that the firm doubled both production capacity and investment to reach USD 10 million to make the advancemen­t. “We are having active discussion­s to start exporting our range to the Gulf," he said.
