CHAIRWOMAN’S COMMENTARY OUR SUPPLIERS: A CORNERSTONE OF THE BOTTLED WATER INDUSTRY When you consider the myriad of raw materials that are used daily in our water bottling plants; the list is long. We depend on our suppliers to ensure we have the materials needed to fill our orders and satisfy our customers. However, the relationship with our suppliers extends beyond simply fulfilling orders. I know that I have depended on a supplier to help evaluate a manufacturing problem and work in collaboration with our plant personnel to develop and execute an effective solution. Whether the supplier provides a service or a product to your business, it is important to build a relationship that is based on mutual understanding of expectations and clear communication. Regardless of the size of your company, forge a strong partnership with your vendors that may result in growing your business, new product development and a ready resource when needed. The support our suppliers provide as members of the International Bottled Water Association (IBWA) is also a partnership that can’t be overlooked. Suppliers are represented on our various IBWA committees and task forces, as well as on the IBWA Board of Directors and Executive Committee. Their willingness to champion and support the important issues that face the bottled water industry is unmeasurable. I have pictures of past annual IBWA Capitol Hill days in my office and in each picture standing shoulder to shoulder with bottler members; are our supplier members too. The ongoing support of our suppliers also involves visiting their booths on the trade show floor during the annual business conference or at the annual June table top reception. These events provide an opportunity for you and your colleagues to learn about and often observe new products and innovations that our suppliers have to offer their customers. So, as you peruse the Buyers’ Guide edition of Bottled Water Reporter and/or visit www.bottledwater.org/buyersguide; just remember a partnership with your suppliers/ vendors is an important component of your business plan. Frankly, our suppliers and vendors are a cornerstone of the bottled water industry.

PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE BOTTLED WATER IS NO.1 FOR A REASON On March 9, 2017, the day we worked hard for and anticipated came. Beverage Marketing Corporation (BMC) reported that bottled water had officially surpassed carbonated soft drinks in 2016 to become America’s largest beverage category, by volume.

IBWA STAFF President Joe K. Doss jdoss@bottledwater.org

Since 1977, there have only been two years when bottled water did not experience growth—the great recession years of 2008 and 2009. The continued vibrant and growing market resulted in per capita consumption of bottled water exceeding 39 gallons in 2016, while consumption of carbonated soft drinks slipped for the twelfth year in a row to 38.5 gallons. There are many contributing factors to bottled water's phenomenal growth, including how consumers associate our products with healthfulness, convenience, safety, and value. In “Bottled Water 2016: No.1 and Growing” (p.12), John Rodwan, Jr., BMC’s editorial director, reports on how bottled water’s total volume reached a historic 12.8 billion gallons in 2016—and suggests that bottled water will “put still more distance between itself and the erstwhile No.1 beverage category, carbonated soft drinks.”

Vice President of Education, Science, and Technical Relations Robert R. Hirst bhirst@bottledwater.org

Meeting consumer demand for bottled water is only possible because bottlers and distributors have knowledgeable and helpful IBWA supplier members they can rely on. That’s why we continue to dedicate one issue of Bottled Water Reporter to the production of the IBWA Buyers’ Guide, which you’ll find on pages 23-56. Now, perhaps more than ever, you need a reliable reference tool that provides quick access to suppliers that can help you meet product orders. In the 2017 IBWA Buyers’ Guide, you’ll find vendors that will help your business be a success.

Director of Government Relations J.P. Toner jtoner@bottledwater.org

Another way to help ensure the success of your business—and the entire bottled water industry—is to educate legislators about our issues. In the Government Relations column (p.58), we provide a quick tutorial on how to host a plant tour for elected officials. In our Communications column (p.62), we turn our attention to one important issue: recycling. Here, we present a few ideas on how you can encourage consumers to recycle their empties. Another pertinent issue is reviewed in the Technical Update column (p.64): the fact that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is updating regulation concerning the use of the term “healthy” on labeling for human food products. Read this column to learn about how IBWA has asked FDA to exempt bottled water from the “beneficial nutrients” criterion and, as part of the revised regulation, permit the use of a “healthy” claim on bottled water labels.

Manager of Member Services Cheryl Bass-Briscoe cbass@bottledwater.org

Becoming the No. 1 packaged beverage in the United States is a milestone event for the bottled water industry. Along with that title comes the responsibility to continue exceeding the expectations of our customers. My hope is that this Buyers’ Guide edition of Bottled Water Reporter will help you do just that.

HEALTHY HYDRATION CAMPAIGN

IBWA Promotes the Convenience of Bottled Water––and the Importance of Recycling During the summer of 2017, IBWA invites members to help promote a new social media campaign—“Bottled Water: Where You Live, Work, and Play”—that emphasizes the convenience of bottled water while onthe-go and when in home or work environments. Promotional materials include posters for the web and Pinterest, Facebook and Instagram posts, and Twitter tweets, which members can share on their social media platforms as written or use as inspiration for developing original messages. Members can also customize the

6

WWW.BOTTLEDWATER.ORG

posters by adding their company or brand logos in the space allocated on the poster templates. Launched on June 21, the first day of summer, campaign materials are accessible two ways: via weekly toolkits that IBWA emails to members and on a campaign page, which is located on the “Members Only” side of the IBWA website: www.bottledwater.org. The campaign also includes IBWA’s recently developed recycling logo: “Put It In The Bin.” This essential feature of the campaign evolved after IBWA staff reviewed the

National Association for PET Container Resources’ (NAPCOR) latest recycling numbers, which revealed that recycling for all plastics had declined slightly. While campaign text promotes the convenience of bottled water, IBWA also wants to encourage people to recycle their empties. Thus, the “story” of the poster above, at left, reads as—“Bottled water: take it on the run… put it in the bin.” IBWA’s recycling logo has also been shared with members, and they are invited to use it on marketing materials, websites, etc.

Throughout the summer, IBWA will conduct Facebook and Instagram competitions, asking our followers to post photos of themselves recycling empty bottled water containers. IBWA will send winners BottledWaterMatters.org t-shirts with the Put It In The Bin logo on the back—and we’ll encourage winners to post photos of them wearing their shirts as well. For more information on IBWA’s summer campaign, contact IBWA Publications Manager Sabrina Hicks: shicks@bottledwater.org.

IBWA’s 2017 June Capitol Hill Day

Nearly 50 IBWA members took to the halls Congress during the IBWA Annual Hill Day on June 7, 2017, to seek continued support for policies that will promote the growth and consumption of bottled water, the world’s healthiest packaged beverage. IBWA members met with almost 70 House and Senate offices to brief Capitol Hill legislators and staff on industry issues and facts, including the National Park Service (NPS) policy that allows individual parks to ban the sale of single-serve bottled water containers, funding for the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and bisphenol A (BPA).

BOTTLED WATER 2016:

No. 1 & Growing:

U.S. and International Developments and Statistics By John G. Rodwan, Jr.

Capping a remarkable, decades-long streak of vigorous growth, bottled water passed a major milestone in 2016 when it surpassed carbonated soft drinks to become the largest beverage category by volume in the United States. Total bottled water volume grew from 11.8 billion gallons in 2015 to 12.8 billion gallons in 2016, an increase of nearly 9 percent. This marked the third year in a row of accelerating growth. Bottled water effectively reshaped the multiple beverage marketplace. When Perrier first entered the United States in the 1970s, few industry observers would have predicted the heights to which bottled water would eventually climb. Where once it would have been unimaginable to see Americans walking down the street carrying plastic bottles of water, or driving around with them in their cars’ cup holders, now that’s the norm.

12 • BWR • WWW.BOTTLEDWATER.ORG


2016 STATISTICS

With the exception of two relatively small declines in 2008 and 2009—when most beverage categories contracted— bottled water volume grew every year from 1977 to 2016. This period included 17 double-digit annual volume growth spurts. Since resuming growth in 2010, bottled water volume has consistently enlarged at solid single-digit percentage rates. As a result, per capita consumption exceeded 39 gallons in 2016, while average intake of carbonated soft drinks slipped to about 38.5 gallons. The comparison of the two largest beverage types is illustrative. Bottled water’s ascent coincided with and encouraged seismic shifts in consumer preferences for refreshment and rehydration. As the ultimate portable and affordable beverage, bottled water spawned new usage occasions and habits. Suitable for consumption at any and all times of day, and not necessarily in need of being kept ice cold, bottled water simply became the preferred beverage not only for consumers aiming to cut back on calories or artificial sweeteners but also for consumers of all kinds.

Total bottled water volume grew from 11.8 billion gallons in 2015 to 12.8 billion gallons in 2016, an increase of nearly 9 percent.

Single-serving sizes of plastic bottles became the most popular option, driving overall growth of the category and accounting for the majority of its volume. Yet all other segments—including larger, multi-serving bottles as well as home and office delivery (HOD), sparkling water, and imports—also registered growth in 2016. In fact, both domestic sparking and imports advanced at double-digit rates, albeit from comparatively small bases.

declines. Even stronger growth followed in each of the next half dozen years. By 2016, volume reached a new volume record—more than 4 billion gallons higher than it had been in 2007. Soft drinks, on the other hand, underwent their twelfth consecutive year of volume reduction in 2016. Bottled water producers’ revenues also declined in both 2008 and 2009 as well, and did so more dramatically than volume, but then also revived. Bottled water wholesale dollar sales first exceeded $6 billion in 2000. By 2007, they neared $11.7 billion. Category sales declined by more than 3 percent to $11.3 billion the following year and then by more than 5 percent to $10.7 billion in 2009. They inched upward in 2010 and climbed back above $11 billion in 2011. Wholesale dollars approached $12 billion in 2012 and topped $12.5 billion in 2013. They exceeded $13.3 billion in 2014, reached $14.5 billion in 2015, and almost hit $16 billion in 2016.

Changes in per capita consumption of bottled water indicate real and increasing enthusiasm for a product that consumers regard as a healthful alternative to other beverages. of fast volume growth, as chronicled in U.S. Bottled Water through 2021, Beverage Marketing Corporation’s latest annual analysis of the market. During the 2000s, bottled water volume charted double-digit percentage growth rates in two years and advanced at rates close to that level in several others. Bottled water volume grew by close to 12 percent in 2002, and, after growing by 10.8 percent in 2005, it enlarged by 9.5 percent in 2006. Like many other beverage types during the economic recession, bottled water departed from the growth pattern of preceding years, when its volume declined by 1.0 percent in 2008 and 2.5 percent in 2009. Unlike carbonated soft drinks, which followed several years of slow growth with multiple volume reductions, bottled water demonstrated that its two consecutive declines were aberrations rather than the start of a lengthy losing streak. When bottled water volume began to grow again in 2010, it essentially restored volume to where it had been prior to the 14

consumption by nearly a dozen gallons since 2006, increasing from 27.6 gallons per person to 39.3 gallons a decade later. During the same period, per capita consumption of carbonated soft drinks dropped by 11.9 gallons. Per capita consumption of major beverage categories (e.g., milk and fruit beverages) also fell. Other types, including coffee and tea, were characterized by stability, though the ready-to-drink versions of both categories made gains. Beverages that are associated with beneficial properties and functional benefits—a group that includes packaged water as well as energy drinks, sports beverages, and ready-to-drink tea—were the most resilient elements of the beverage market after 2009. Even so, average intake of ready-to-drink tea and sports beverages remained fractions of bottled water’s per capita consumption level. Indeed, bottled water added more gallons to its per-person consumption rate in ten years than either ready-to-drink tea or sports beverages reached by the end of that period. (Ready-to-drink edged above 5 gallons per American in 2016; sports beverages approached that level.) Bottled water showed itself to

be not only a vital component of the liquid refreshment beverage market but also poised for still more increases in per capita consumption in the future.

The ready availability of packaged water wherever beverages are sold crucially differentiates bottled water from tap.

Numerous attributes contribute to bottled water’s ongoing appeal to U.S. consumers, including its associations with healthfulness, convenience, safety, and value. Multiple packaging types, ranging from bulk to single-serve, facilitate a wide range of uses. Among ready-to-drink commercial beverages, bottled water is relatively inexpensive, and aggressive pricing—especially in the retail PET segment (named for its bottles made from polyethylene terephthalate)—made it more and more affordable. Consumers’ interest in beverages that deliver benefits in addition to refreshment alone also contributes to the fundamental hydrating beverage’s rise in the beverage rankings. Bottled water’s lack of calories and artificial ingredients attracts conscientious consumers. Even where tap water may be safe, many people prefer bottled water, which they regard as superior in taste. The ready availability of packaged water wherever beverages are sold also crucially differentiates bottled water from tap. JUL/AUG 2017

Though it has occasionally been compared with tap water, bottled water actually achieved its position by enticing consumers away from other packaged beverages deemed less healthful than bottled water. While some consumers may have shifted away from regular, full-calorie sodas in favor of their diet versions, many others switched to bottled water instead. As some consumers became wary of artificial sweeteners, they shunned diet as well as regular soda.

Category Developments Domestic non-sparkling water consistently stands as the largest segment of the U.S. packaged water business; its more than 12 billion gallons represented 94 percent of total volume in 2016. As a whole, domestic non-sparkling saw slower volume reductions than the overall market in 2008 and 2009, and then it outperformed again in 2010, 2011, and 2012. It moved very slightly slower than the total market in 2013. Domestic non-sparkling water saw significantly faster growth in 2014 than in 2013, but it lagged the bottled water market as whole, as it did once again for a fourth year in a row in 2016. The non-sparkling category includes various components that typically perform quite differently from one another. In 2016, for the sixth consecutive year, all four segments grew, but they did so at dissimilar rates. Throughout most of the 1990s and 2000s, the retail premium segment— consisting of still water in single-serve PET bottles—drove the overall category’s development. Indeed, the PET component enlarged by a double-digit percentage rate 16 consecutive times through 2007. Growth slowed markedly in 2008 before it disappeared in 2009. Yet PET’s 0.9

Although a small segment of the bottled water market, domestic sparkling water grew at an explosive rate in 2016: 35.5%.

Retail bulk volume experienced some reversals, as more than a few consumers chose convenient PET multipacks in large format retail channels instead of larger (1 to 2.5 gallon) sizes. Its share slid from nearly one-quarter of the category volume at the beginning of the century to less than 9 percent by 2016, largely due to competition from PET. After several declines, the segment did grow each year from 2011 to 2016. However, retail bulk’s 3.6 percent uptick was considerably slower than the overall bottled water market, or the non-sparkling sub-set, in 2016.

percent reduction was far less than the 2.5 percent loss measured for bottled water in general. Besides, PET volume in 2009 of almost 5.2 billion gallons stood more than 4.1 billion gallons higher than it had in 1999, and its share of total bottled water swelled from 24 percent to more than 61 percent during that ten-year period. In 2010, PET experienced the strongest growth of any bottled water segment, advancing by 6.8 percent to 5.5 billion gallons, which boosted its share above 63 percent. Growth slowed in 2011 but remained well in advance of the total market: volume greater than 5.8 billion gallons flowed from growth of 5.3 percent, which pushed PET’s share to 64 percent. In 2012, the segment saw its strongest showing since 2007, increasing by more than 8 percent to 6.3 billion gallons, which represented 65 percent of the overall market. Greater than 6 percent growth in 2013 propelled volume to nearly 6.7 billion gallons—essentially two-thirds of the total. In 2014, the segment advanced at an even greater rate than in 2012, catapulting volume above 7.2 billion gallons and market share to 66.4 percent. Still another year of acceleration drove PET volume to nearly 7.9 billion gallons and share to more than 67 percent. In

Like retail bulk, HOD faced competition from convenient PET bottles. The segment, which comprised the largest of them all as recently as the mid-1990s, accounted a bit less than 11 percent of total volume by 2016. HOD volume slipped in the United States from close to 1.4 billion gallons in the early 2000s to around 1.2 billion gallons a few years later before inching back up to about 1.4 billion gallons again in 2016, when volume increased by 3.3 percent. The comparatively small, mostly regional vending segment involving refillable jug containers realized growth even in the years when total bottled water volume declined. Its low cost during economic hard times undoubtedly had something to do with vending’s positive results. It continued to grow in 2016, albeit at a far slower rate than the domestic still water market or the bottled water market as a whole and only slightly faster than those recorded for retail bulk and HOD. The two segments outside the domestic non-sparkling sphere grew in 2016, and, once again, both did so muscularly. Imported water, the smallest segment of them all, is prone to fluctuations. In the 2000s, it registered doubledigit percentage growth in some years, and equally sizeable contractions in others. After one of those up years in 2007, imported water’s volume fell sharply in 2008 and then plummeted precipitously in 2009. It continued to shrink in 2010 before inching up modestly in 2011. Volume growth started accelerating in 2012 and 2013. In 2014, imports notched their first double-digit growth rate since 2007. In 2015, they advanced at an even faster clip, and another quickening followed in 2016. Sparkling water held a small share of bottled water volume but grew at an even more explosive rate than imports, let alone retail PET, in 2016, as it did in several previous years. JUL/AUG 2017

Domestic non-sparkling water accounted for almost all per capita bottled water consumption in 2016, as usual. Sparkling water volume worked out to about 1.8 gallons per person. (With imports, the figure translated into about six-tenths of a gallon per U.S. resident.) In the key PET portion, average intake moved from 15.7 gallons in 2006 to nearly 26.5 gallons ten years later.

International Developments Bottled water became a beverage industry phenomenon not only in the United States—which until fairly recently ranked as the No.1 market in the world in terms of volume— but also in virtually every major geographical region of the world. Bottled water initially emerged as a large,

mainstream commercial beverage category in Western Europe, where consumption of it has long been part of many residents’ routines. It now stands as a truly global beverage. Several Asian markets achieved strong growth to become major bottled water markets during the 2000s. In fact, Asia itself became the largest regional market in 2011, edging out North America and easily outshining Europe. After having moved ahead of Mexico to claim the No.2 position in 2012, China surpassed the United States to take the lead in 2013. By 2016, China accounted for close to one-quarter of global bottled water volume. Global bottled water consumption is estimated to have topped 92 billion gallons in 2016, according to data from

2016 STATISTICS

By 2016, China accounted for close to one-quarter of global bottled water volume. the latest edition of Beverage Marketing’s The Global Bottled Water Market. Total consumption swelled by almost 6 percent during the year. Per capita consumption of more than 12 gallons represented a gain of 2.7 gallons over the span of five years. Of course, per capita consumption by individual region or country can diverge significantly from the global average. For instance, several Western European countries have per capita consumption levels far above 25 gallons, and the No.1 market had average intake of more than 67 gallons in 2016. Simultaneously, much of the developing world, where the majority of the world’s population resides, finds its per capita consumption figures still in the single-digit range. Even if the global per capita consumption figure can obscure significant regional disparities, bottled water’s international growth signals demand for it in diverse markets. Consumers have shown a thirst for it in highly developed markets, in less developed ones, and in economies in transition. Bottled water tapped into some different consumer trends around the globe. In developed countries such as the United States and Canada, bottled water became a particularly dynamic major commercial beverage category by registering as an attractive option for health-conscious consumers. Marketers positioned bottled water as a virtuous alternative to carbonated soft drinks and fruit juice drinks (some of which comprise sizeable portions of their own product portfolios). In the developed world, consumers came to see bottled water as not only a way of achieving hydration but also as a functional beverage. At the same time, bottled water serves at least a partial solution to the problem of often-unsafe water found in many economically developing countries.

While much of the world’s bottled water market is still highly fragmented and controlled by local brands, consolidation has occurred. Four companies came to dominate much of the market. Swiss food and beverage giant Nestlé and France’s Danone are the traditional leaders of the bottled water pack. Both companies originally centered their operations around the core markets of Western Europe and the United States. However, as water growth is increasingly coming from the developing world, Nestlé and Danone expanded their initiatives to the competitive fields of Asia, Latin America, and other areas. Danone actually stepped back from the U.S. market to focus instead on some of these other markets. Soft drink industry leaders Coca-Cola and PepsiCo also entered the bottled water arena. After attaining solid positions in the United States, both companies increasingly devoted resources and energy to developing their global bottled water businesses. North America boasts two of the three largest individual bottled water markets with the United States and Mexico, which together represented for 23.1 percent of the world’s packaged water market in 2016. The U.S. bottled water market had been a catalyst for much of the global expan-

Its compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 7 percent for the five-year period ending with 2016 was faster than the 6.3 percent CAGR achieved by the growth of the global market during the same period. Mexico alone accounted for 9.2 percent of the global volume with 8.5 billion gallons in 2016. With a five-year CAGR of 3.3 percent, however, it grew much more slowly than either the United States or the world market. JUL/AUG 2017

Other than the United States, China was the only other country that could claim a double-digit share of global volume with more than 22.1 billion gallons and a percentage of the total market higher than the combined shares of the second and third largest markets in 2016. Chinese bottled water volume has enjoyed double-digit percentage growth rates for several consecutive years, registering a 12.8 percent CAGR for the period from 2011 to 2016—the highest rate among the ten biggest bottled water markets.

did India, the No.3 Asian market, which ranked sixth overall. Thailand also stood as a top-ten bottled water market, but it grew more slowly than China, Indonesia, and India. Europe may not boast any of the biggest bottled water markets, but it does have several major ones, including three in the top 10. Yet, because these are firmly established markets, their growth tends to be slower than those where bottled water has less of a tradition. Some of the most prominent continental countries experienced only very slight growth. For example, during the five-year period ending with 2016, Italy’s volume grew by a CAGR of just 0.5 percent. Germany, the eighth largest bottled water market in the world, had a CAGR of 1.2 percent, and tenth-place France moved at the same pace. As a group, the trio of leading European bottled water markets accounted for 9.2 percent of the world’s total volume in 2016—the same share Mexico held by itself.

In the developed world, consumers see bottled water as not only a way of achieving hydration but also as a functional beverage. Still water accounts for the majority of bottled water sales in much of the world. Sparkling water sales are strong in several countries, such as Argentina, Chile, Uruguay, the Netherlands, and Germany, where sparkling water is often served with meals. On a global level, sparkling water accounts for an estimated 10 percent of the total volume, with still water accounting for the remaining 90 percent. Plastic packaging is preferred over glass in almost every country. Even in Germany and other countries, such as the United Kingdom, where glass has a strong presence, PET is the most dynamic and rapidly growing segment. At about one-third of global volume, HOD, or bulk water, still accounts for a minority of global bottled water sales. Yet it is a vital segment in many countries, such as Mexico, where it accounts for more than two-thirds of the volume. Mexico regularly leads the world in bottled water per capita consumption, and that remained the case even after China surpassed it in absolute volume. Average intake in Mexico jumped from 60.5 gallons in 2011 to 67.2 gallons five years later. Per capita consumption in China stood more than four times lower, at 15.7 gallons, in 2016. The

Several Middle Eastern markets rank very highly in per capita bottled water consumption. With the equivalent of more than 31 gallons for each resident in 2016, Saudi Arabia had the eighth highest level of bottled water consumption in the world. In addition to Saudi Arabia, the Middle East region had the United Arab Emirates and Lebanon in the top 20 in per capita bottled water consumption. At slightly more than 20 gallons per resident, Kuwait also consumes bottled water at a rate greater than the global average, though it didn’t make it onto the 2016 top-20 list. Although Europe no longer held the top spot in volume per capita, nine of the top 20 bottled water consumers on a per person basis were European countries as of 2016. The consumers of the combined market of BelgiumLuxembourg imbibed more than 35 gallons each, a rate that tended to move upward over the years. Germany, France, Spain, and Italy were the other European countries with per capita consumption greater than 30 gallons, while Hungary came close to that level. French consumers quaffed 1.2 gallons more bottled water in 2016 than they had five years earlier. In 2016, Germany and Spain had per capita consumption rates of 38 gallons and 31 gallons, respectively, putting them in fifth and ninth place in terms of average bottled water intake. Like France, Germany consumed more bottled water per person in 2016 than it had five years before. Hungary, which ranked eleventh, also increased its bottled water consumption, though only slightly. Other European markets among the top 20 were Austria, Switzerland, and Poland.

volume, the most populous countries generally do not have high per-person intake levels. The Chinese special administration region of Hong Kong made the list for the first time as its average intake approached 22 gallons in 2009 and continued to increase per capita consumption subsequently, climbing to 28.8 gallons in 2016. Despite its status as the largest market, mainland China did not rank among the top 20 markets in per capita consumption in 2016, although intake had climbed above the global norm by that point. Americans’ 2016 per capita bottled water consumption put the United States in the No.4 position among the countries of the world, right behind Italy but ahead of Germany.

Looking Ahead Beverage Marketing expects bottled water to continue reconfiguring the U.S. multiple beverage marketplace, gaining market share all the while. The total amount of liquid Americans annually imbibe will remain stable, resulting in overall volume growth in line with population increases. Bottled water is likely to grow much faster, unlike carbonated soft drinks or fruit beverages, which will continue to cede territory. Most other major beverage categories, including coffee and tea, are likely to grow much more slowly than bottled water. Bottled water looks likely to continue building on its already monumental history of enlargement, and put still more distance between itself and the erstwhile No.1 beverage category, carbonated soft drinks, which it exceeded in size in 2016. Around the turn of the century, per capita soft drink consumption regularly exceeded 50 gallons, and bottled water could reach that level in the near future.

Welcome to Our House: The Basics of Plant Tours By J.P. Toner, IBWA Director of Government Relations

Let’s begin by answering the most basic question about plant tours: why should you host a plant tour of your facility for elected officials? The quick answer is a plant tour offers you a great opportunity to educate legislators about what you do (and do well). Legislators are key influencers who determine legislation, regulation, taxes, zoning, and a wealth of other state and local issues and guidelines that impact your company. Giving them a chance to see what it is you do as a bottler, supplier, or distributor helps provide them with 58

WWW.BOTTLEDWATER.ORG

a “Bottled Water 101” education— and makes them aware of how the important decisions they make impact your day-to-day operations. Inviting legislators to visit your plant also gives them a bird’s eye view of the good work you and your employees do. One-on-one time with your local, state, or federal representative allows you to clearly explain your business in a unique setting. More importantly for the elected official, it offers him or her a chance to interact with your employees, who are most likely voters in the legislator's

district or state. No matter why you decide to hold a plant tour, know that the entire industry benefits when decision makers gain a better understanding of the bottled water industry.

“Hey, IBWA…” Once you decide to host a plant tour, your first action should be to reach out to IBWA for support. Staff at IBWA have a wealth of knowledge on best practices for plant site visits, and we can let you know what works (and what doesn’t) to help ensure your event is a

HOSTING A LEGISLATOR AT YOUR PLANT IS EASIER THAN YOU THINK. success. We can also help with the planning, running, and follow up for any event you’d like to host at your plant.

The Invite Your next step is to determine whom to invite and why. Would you like to invite a federal, state, or local official because he or she represents the district or state in which your plant is

located? Or maybe he or she has oversight on issues that greatly impact your business. Perhaps you met your representative at a past event, and he or she asked about a tour. Or maybe someone on your staff recommended that a particular legislator would benefit from a tour. Once you’ve settled on the legislator you’d like to invite to your plant, reach out to his or her staff and offer a few dates for a potential visit. Elected officials often have heavily booked calendars, so being flexible about your date options goes a long way in showing that you are dedicated to hosting an event. Once a date is set, be sure to maintain communication with the official’s office and be prepared for any possible changes. The more you communicate, the less likely it is that you’ll be caught by surprise when changes occur.

Planning the Event Obviously, you’ll want to be hands-on for your event, but you shouldn’t feel like you have to take on everything by yourself. Organizing a plant tour provides an excellent opportunity to give facility employees special responsibilities—and by involving them, you’ll increase the likelihood that you’ll get employee buy-in. Determine who will officially welcome your guest and be responsible for escorting him or her around the facility. Also, schedule time for staff to interact with the official and explain their daily job responsibilities as part of the tour. Build in ample time for a Q&A session between the legislator and your internal expert staff. Before the day of the tour, hold a practice session with staff to ensure that everyone knows his or her role. Encourage staff to answer

Tour Day

Follow Up

On the day of the tour, welcome your official and his or her staff, and start with a quick meeting in a conference room or office before heading out onto the plant floor. Present an overview of what you will show the legislator, making sure to include information about the site. Move at a casual pace, allowing time for talking points, questions, and photographs. (And don’t forget to give your staff a chance to interact with the official.) Finish the tour back where you started and allow time for you to answer any lingering questions. This “before and after” provides a quieter atmosphere to have deeper discussions about industry, products, operations, and the regulatory environment in which you work.

Following the visit, send the elected official a note of thanks and provide promised answers to any questions leftover from the event. It is also a thoughtful gesture to include any photos taken during the tour. Don’t forget to contact IBWA and tell us about your successful event. We want to hear all about it! Remember, IBWA is here to provide any support you might need—from identifying invitees to providing industry talking points to being on site to help with the day’s activities. Contact the IBWA Government Relations team and we’ll be glad to help in any way to ensure a great site visit.

When Doing the Right Thing Can Inspire Change By Jill Culora, IBWA Vice President of Communications

Using fewer resources to reduce our environmental footprint has long been a goal of the bottled water industry. In recent years, the industry has made tremendous strides, such as the following: • Reducing the weight of bottled water containers from 18.9 grams per container on average in 2000 to 9.25 grams in 2014 saved a total of 6.26 billion pounds of PET resin from 2000 to 2014. In fact, today some bottlers are using PET containers that weigh only 7.5 grams.

The bottled water industry’s efforts are a true success story, right? Well, it depends on whom you ask. Due to lightweighting, PET reclaimers now need more than double the amount of empty bottled water containers they needed 17 years ago to make 1 pound of resin. To recover 1 pound of resin today, reclaimers need 49 bottled water containers; in 2000, they needed just 24 bottles. For comparison, it takes only 19 empty carbonated soft drink containers to make 1 pound of resin. At the 2016 Paper & Plastics Recycling Conference, Tison Keel Jr., director of PET, PTA, and EO derivatives at IHS Chemical,


COMMUNICATIONS

CONSIDER TELLING YOUR CUSTOMERS ABOUT "STORIED PLASTICS"—rPET PRODUCTS THAT DISCLOSE THEIR HISTORY OF SUSTAINABILITY. highlighted the fact that reclaimers need to process many more plastic bottles to make up each pound of resin they sell. He said that as Americans attempt to get healthier by shifting from carbonated soft drinks in favor of bottled water, PET resin sales have "suffered a loss of growth," resulting in an increase of less than 1 percent per year. From the reclaimer's perspective, that's a bad thing. Demand for PET in North America is basically flat because PET content in water bottles has fallen due to lightweighting and consumption of carbonated soft drinks is down. Keel states, in an email to IBWA, that the total growth potential for virgin PET is limited because “production capacity has expanded at a rate in excess of demand growth in every region of the world.” Add to this the fact that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) reports recycling rates across all materials is flat (bit.ly/EPARecyclingRatesFlat). That means PET reclaimers are capturing 18.5 million pounds less plastic in PET bottled water containers alone than they did in 2011—despite the tremendous growth in bottled water consumption. Also at the 2016 Paper & Plastics Recycling Conference, Steve Navedo, senior vice president of sales at Perpetual Recycling Solutions, stated that the biggest dilemma for PET reclaimers is “supply.” This is ironic considering consumers say they are willing to pay more for products that appear to be sustainable—such as those produced

using recycled PET (rPET). While there are plenty of companies producing rPET products, one that stands out is Rothy’s (www.rothys.com), a shoe manufacturer that markets it product as “powered by recycled water bottles.” Each pair of Rothy’s is produced using resin-made fiber from about six recycled bottled water containers. At $125 a pair, Vogue magazine has declared the shoes to be “the most environmentally friendly shoes on the planet.”

Recycling Is Personal The take-home message for IBWA members is that conditions are ripe to educate consumers on the value of recycling. Through our messaging, we can help consumers learn how to take the next step from appreciating rPET products to actually becoming active recyclers. Increasing public awareness can go a long way toward helping people realize how the simple act of recycling their plastic beverage containers adds up to new, sustainable products on the shelf. There are a lot of ways IBWA members can help educate consumers about the value of recycling, but one element that seems to have been missing up until now is how to make the messaging personally relevant. A recent Packaging Digest article—“What Story Does Your Recycled Plastics Tell Consumers?” (bit. ly/PD_storiedplastics)—offers this suggestion: because consumers choose “ecofriendly products” based on their use of recycled content, marketers would

be wise to offer “storied plastics.” These products are essentially rPET-made products that disclose the story behind the post-consumer plastic. Rothy’s is a great example because the company promotes the fact that its shoes are made from recycled plastic bottled water containers. The article’s author, Tom Szaky, founder and CEO of TerraCycle (www. terracycle.com) concludes with this: Recycling is one of the most accessible and easily understood aspects of sustainability, and most consumers have experience with the process, but have little connection to where their recycled items go; storied plastics provide the opportunity for brands to be that connection.

Why the Bottled Water Industry Cares About Recycling As the EPA report shows, recycling rates in the United States are either flat or declining. If we do not work to improve recycling rates, plastic bottles will end up in the trash as litter—and then become the worst advertisements for our products. What can you do? Consider ways to communicate recycling messaging to your customers. These could include using storied plastics examples that you convey to your customer audience via the following means: • product label • company website • marketing materials • billing receipts • email news • uniform or vehicle signage. It is an odd reality of our times that consumers are willing to pay more for sustainable products, but they won’t always take the extra step necessary to recycle. The industry has made great strides in reducing its environmental footprint. Now we owe it to our customers to help guide them in the right direction.

R E T A W D E L T T O B IBWA Seeks “Healthy” Label for Bottled Water From FDA By Al Lear, IBWA Director of Science and Research

For the first time in more than two decades, the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is updating its regulation concerning the use of the term “healthy” on labeling for human food products. Under FDA’s current definition of “healthy,” bottled water 64

BWR

WWW.BOTTLEDWATER.ORG

products cannot bear that claim because they do not contain a sufficient level of the beneficial nutrients specified in the regulation. On April 26, 2017, in response to FDA's request for public comment, IBWA submitted written comments asking the Agency to exempt

bottled water from the “beneficial nutrients” criterion and, as part of the revised regulation, permit the use of the word "healthy" on bottled water labels. FDA's request for comments on this matter came after the Agency received a citizen’s petition requesting that the


TECHNICAL UPDATE FDA align the nutrient content claim regulations with current dietary guidance. The petition asked FDA to redefine the nutrient content claim “healthy” in terms of total fat intake and change the regulation to incorporate whole foods and dietary patterns (rather than specific nutrients). The 2015–2020 Dietary Guidelines for Americans recommends healthy dietary patterns that focus on food groups and discusses added sugars in the diet—and they advise the public to drink less sugar-sweetened beverages and more water.

Public Discussion Allowing a “healthy” claim on food labels was first regulated back in the early 1990s, when FDA focused on reducing the amount of fat in the American diet. Food that met certain criteria for the content of fat, saturated fat, sodium, and cholesterol, and contained certain minimum amounts of nutrients (e.g., vitamins and minerals) could be labeled as “healthy.” Revising the current regulation began with a Federal Register notice on September 28, 2016, followed by a comment extension on December 30, 2016, and a notification of a public meeting on February 16, 2017. During the FDA public meeting on March 9, 2017, various stakeholders and consumers discussed the use of the term “healthy” in the labeling of human food. To facilitate additional input from attendees, the meeting included breakout sessions that focused on “Healthy as a Nutrient-Based Claim,” “Healthy as a Food Component-Based Claim,” and “Consumer Meaning and Understanding of the Term ‘Healthy.’” Reports following the breakout sessions indicated a general consensus that the “healthy” definition should incorporate both nutrient-based and specific food group-based approaches. During the public comment portion of the meeting, IBWA presented oral

BOTTLED WATER SHOULD BE ABLE TO USE THE WORD "HEALTHY" ON PRODUCT LABELS. comments, pointing out that bottled water helps consumers maintain healthy dietary practices in line with recommendations in the 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines. Based on the fact that bottled water does not qualify to use “healthy” on its labeling under the existing definition of the term, IBWA asked FDA for a narrow exemption from the beneficial nutrients criterion in line with existing exemptions for raw and frozen fruits and vegetables.

Basis for a Healthy Claim Several government agencies have recognized the important role water plays in a healthy diet. The 2015-2020 Dietary Guidelines state that “beverages that are calorie-free—especially water—or that contribute beneficial nutrients…should be the primary beverage consumed.” The Center for Disease Control and Prevention notes “drinking water every day is good for overall health” (bit.ly/CDCwaterguidance). In addition, the following tip from the U.S. Department of Agriculture references the Dietary Guidelines’ recommendations concerning the need to make better beverage choices: “Drink water instead of sugary drinks. Nondiet soda, energy or sports drinks, and other sugar-sweetened drinks contain a lot of calories from added sugars and few nutrients” (bit.ly/MyPlateTenTips). The fact that bottled water was recently recognized as the favorite packaged beverage of Americans, outpacing carbonated soft drinks for the first time (by volume), shows that consumers rely

on our products to help them establish healthy dietary practices. In IBWA's comments, we pointed out that FDA has granted exemptions to the beneficial nutrients criterion in the past to allow foods (e.g., cucumbers and celery) to qualify as “healthy” where dietary recommendations encourage consumption of the food and consumption of the food is associated with health benefits. Bottled water is calorie free and has zero levels of nutrients of concern, such as sugars. Given that cucumbers are 96 percent water and have a similar nutritional profile to water, IBWA argued that it would be inconsistent not to grant an exemption to the beneficial nutrients criterion for bottled water.

Next Steps FDA does not have a timeline for finalizing the new regulation; however, due to the interest shown during the agency’s March 9 public meeting, FDA has stated that “an updated, and appropriate, definition of healthy is important to the American people, industry, health care professionals, food scientists, and other experts.” FDA has committed to reviewing the comments it has received and will get in touch with those organizations if it has any questions. However, that process could take several years. For our part, IBWA will continue to monitor any FDA activity on the proposed changes to the “healthy” definition and will determine if further action is required to convince the Agency that water should be exempted from the beneficial nutrients criterion.
