To live a healthier life not only involves a better choice of foods but also the water you drink, this year Spritzer Berhad (Spritzer), Malaysia’s leading producer of bottled natural mineral water, turns 30 and they will be celebrating its anniversary with a roadshow that aims to reinforce its commitment toward environmental stewardship.

Spritzer’s 30 Years Anniversary roadshow was held at Sunway Pyramid from 22nd to
25th August 2019, visitors can learn more about the company’s efforts toward greater sustainability and take part in the various programs and activities prepared such as potting plants with Spritzer’s mineral water, photo booth, tea mixology, cooking demonstration and more.

In conjunction with this event, Spritzer also introduces ACILIS to offer consumers who are environmentally-conscious with another alternative, the new silica-rich natural mineral water from Spritzer comes in plant-based bottles that are non-toxic and compostable ̶ a first in Malaysia. 

Speaking at the official launch of the roadshow titled “30 years of Natural Goodness” held at the Sunway Pyramid Shopping Mall, Dr. Chuah Chaw Teo, Spritzer’s director of R&D, said that environmental preservation has been at the core of the company’s operations from its earliest history.

“From the very beginning of our operations, we viewed environmental pollution with great concern because we understood how it can affect the quality of water, as well as damage the already limited sources of water in the country,” said Chuah.

“It is with this concern that Spritzer took the initiative to invest in a vast landbank measuring 330 acres, approximately the size of 266 football fields, surrounded by a pristine tropical rainforest, located far away from all pollution and creating a safe zone around our water source, hence protecting the integrity, quality, safety and purity of its natural mineral water,” he said, elaborating that the company’s natural mineral water is untouched by human hands, from source to bottle.

“Then, as part of our corporate social responsibility and to create awareness among the public on the importance of embracing sustainability as a lifestyle, we erected a Spritzer EcoPark in the midst of this facility, where visitors are welcomed to relax and unwind in quiet, surrounded by natural flora and fauna in their original environment, undisturbed by humans,” Chuah said.

Spritzer EcoPark was opened to the public in July 2015. The park features various recreational, educational and tourism-related activities and attractions includes jungle trekking, bird-watching, golfing at an 18-hole mini golf course, a visitor gallery, guided tours of the company’s water bottling process and more.

“Our efforts didn’t stop there and we continuously carry-out initiatives at the park to strengthen the ecosystems there, as well as create greater awareness towards the need to protect and preserve our environment,” Chuah said and added that the company had recently planted over 16,000 trees at the park to enhance its biodiversity.

Chuah also stated that Spritzer’s environmental efforts goes beyond protecting the company-owned water sources and supply. “We also strive to ensure that our efforts are not limited to just conserving and protecting the environment, but also to achieve a more sustainable practice by intertwining some of these into our own product life-cycle,” he said.
