Ardagh Group Glass North America has entered a long-term supply agreement to become the exclusive supplier of bottles for Mountain Valley spring water products.

Mountain Valley selected Ardagh to manufacture green glass water bottles for its premium spring and sparkling waters in order to preserve the quality and taste.

Mountain Valley Spring Water corporate marketing director Stephan Williams said: “We are delighted to partner with Ardagh Group on this long-term supply agreement for the iconic glass water bottles that package our natural, authentic spring water.

“After spending more than 3,500 years on its journey from the source, Mountain Valley Spring Water is committed to keeping its spring water pure, flowing and sustainable, so we can continue to bottle in glass and share with many generations to come.”

Under the deal, the packaging firm will produce 100% glass bottles for Mountain Valley’s Spring Water, Sparkling Water and Sparkling Essence in 333ml, 500ml, 750ml and 1l sizes.

Ardagh Group North American Glass division chief commercial officer John Shaddox said: “As one of the leading suppliers of inherently sustainable packaging, Ardagh Group is pleased to manufacture this collection of custom glass bottles for Mountain Valley Spring Water.

“This line of glass bottles, known for its protective qualities and environmental distinction, is the ideal packaging choice for today’s environmentally-conscious consumer.”

In January, Ardagh Group Glass North America expanded its single-serve portfolio with the launch of a 187ml glass wine bottle in the US.

The bottles are available in 24-pack cases and can be used for multiple brands under the single-serve category.
