Icelandic Glacial is recognised as the world’s first Carbon Neutral bottled water for both its product and operations, harnessing 100% natural green energy in the form of geothermal and hydroelectric power to produce its premium and award-winning Icelandic water.
The state-of-the-art, high capacity bottling plant is situated in Hlidarendi at the edge of the Ölfus Spring. The dedicated stainless steel pipeline penetrates deeply through solid rock into the source. The water is piped directly into the bottling plant from the spring via a dedicated stainless steel pipeline. The new factory is equipped with cutting edge bottling equipment capable of producing over 30,000 bottles per hour (bph).
