Amazon  Spring  Waters  (ASW)  was established  to market  and distribute  pure spring water  from  an  exclusive  source  near  Curitiba,  Brazil.  The  quality  of  the  water  is described  as  “excellent”  and  “similar  to  Evian”  by  Professor  Richard  G.  Taylor  of University  College  London,  a  leading  world  expert  on  water  quality,  and  can  be classified  as  spring  water  in  all  major  markets.  The  water  resource  comes  from  a pristine karst aquifer and can provide a  near-perpetual supply of  superior water at a volume  that  would  make  ASW  a major  sustainable  brand  in  the  USA  market  and beyond.  ASW has a 0% export duty.

The ASW business model is designed to achieve success as a premium brand in the global market.

ASW  perceives  a  significant  opportunity  to  enter  the  industry  using  a  powerful marketing   campaign   related   to   water   purity,   consumer   engagement   with preservation of the Amazon Rainforest, lessened environmental impact through use of  fully  recyclable  bottles  and  a commitment  to  adopt   biodegradable   packaging when technology and regulatory compliance has been established.

Core Beliefs
  • Citizenship – We trust in people. By providing the public with the means to save the Amazon and benefit the environment, ASW will unleash their potential and bring about a symbiosis between a private company and the public good.
  • Environment – We co-exist with animal and plant species. We cannot survive without a healthy world organism. The environment is our future and we must take steps now to protect it.
  • Legacy – ASW is committed to creating a legacy built upon partnership with the consumer, governments, and foundations. Our legacy will be the Amazon and a successful model demonstrating how creativity and ethical stewardship can result in transformation.
The Global Bottled Water Industry

AN ECO FRIENDLY OPPORTUNITY

The  water  beverage  industry  is  highly  concentrated  among  several  large firms,  none  of  which  offers  a distinctive  eco-friendly  brand,  product  and packaging  similar  to  that  of  ASW.  In  the  USA,  climate  change  and  recent high-profile  droughts  such  as  those  in  California  have    heightened consumer concern regarding access to pure and plentiful fresh water.

As noted above, the US is the largest bottled water market, $28.7 billion in size  and  when  grouped  with  other  ASW  target  markets  including  the  UK, France, and Germany, the overall target market  increases to  $47.9  billion in revenue.

ASW will evaluate over time the opportunity to enter the Brazilian market, which is projected to surpass $10 billion in revenue by 2021 and currently has an annual sales volume of 10.8 billion litres. MORE

The Spring

The property consists of 3.04 hectares of land owned by ASW, with two established wells each capable of producing 26,400 liters per hour, or 220 million liters per year. The property has an additional natural well which, subject to further flow-testing, is likely to produce similar output. ASW has rights to an additional 49 hectares of land from which it can engage in extraction of spring water, with these rights granted by the Federal Government of Brazil. Subject to meeting flow-test parameters, ASW is entitled to sink an unlimited number of additional wells on these properties, with each well capable of producing 220 million liters of water per year.

Business Model

The ASW business model is designed to capitalize on the demand factors below to achieve success as a premium brand in the USA and potentially in the other leading premium bottled water markets of the United Kingdom, France, and Germany.

The USA bottled water industry for containers under 10L has been growing in value at a CAGR of 7.5% over the past three years, reaching a market size of almost $29 billion in 2017.

The ASW business model consists of the distribution and sale of bottled water in the US for the first three years of operations, followed by expansion into the other leading premium bottled water markets of UK, France and Germany. ASW anticipates developing close strategic partnerships with leading distributors, supported by a unique ASW marketing campaign to stimulate demand. The business model’s primary features are:

  • Water Quality: Amazon Spring Waters is a genuine spring water that has been independently tested for purity and mineral content. Subject to compliance with local regulatory requirements, it may also be marketed as mineral water given its favorable content of calcium, magnesium, and other minerals.
  • Abundance of Water Resources: The water resource accessible in the karst aquifer is protected and plentiful. Previous appraisals of the ASW resource have indicated a near perpetual supply as long as periods are allowed for natural resupply of the aquifer. Brazil has some of the strictest environmental regulations in the world and it is unlikely any future economic development would be allowed in a manner that would jeopardize the water resource.
  • Environmental Sustainability: ASW initial packaging will be 100% fully recyclable plastic. Going forward, once the technology is established and regulatory compliance confirmed, ASW is committed to using biodegradable plastic for its packaging to ensure its products do not cause environmental damage.
  • First Mover: ASW will be the first major bottled water exporter from Brazil. Brazil has a generally positive image throughout the Americas, and for the US in particular, where it is associated with nature, health, beauty, and a romantic spirit.
  • Leadership Team: The leadership team at ASW includes executives who have been overseeing the project for over 14 years. They have combined skills in new ventures, government relations, finance and management that add significant value to the ASW opportunity.
  • Technology Platform: ASW will offer a technology platform including a website and mobile app that will be highly engaging for consumers, allowing them to directly see their impact on conservation of the Amazon Rainforest.
  • Charitable Giving: ASW will develop an altruistic, socially conscious image through its efforts to conserve the Amazon Rainforest.
