bottled water to use 100% renewable energy in the botteling process.
Our website is currently being crafted to perfection - visit us in the near future.
Indulgence without Guilt.
OVATION ™ Natural Mineral Water is perfect for people with an eye for style, a penchant for perfection and a discerning palate to match.
It is also perfect for those who wish to tread lightly on our precious planet.
Style and sophistication are qualities that are easy to recognise, but much harder to define.
The same can be said for bottled water.
Ubiquitous in nature, form and function, bottled waters appear to offer one simple solution – hydration in a disposable plastic bottle.
But not all waters are created equal.

Interview with Nikki Seegers - Editor at Live Eco
Is there room for yet another bottled water product in today's crowded market space?
Yes, we believe so, but only if it offers an advantage, improvement or significant point of difference over every other bottled water product in the market.
WHAT DIFFERENTIATES OVATION ™ FROM ALL OTHER WATERS?
Firstly, we can confidentially say that OVATION ™ is the most eco-friendly bottled water product in South Africa. We are proud to make this claim as we are the first company to use renewable energy sources in our bottling and packaging plant.
Secondly, our key differentiator is that we bottle at a natural source in a protected eco-system. Our water is naturally granite-filtered and comes from a trusted and renewable source which has a long history of quality and reliability.
WHAT OTHER GREEN INITIATIVES ARE YOU IMPLEMENTING?
Our packaging design and manufacture uses the least possible PET material without compromising on the integrity of the bottles.
Our labels are not attached to the bottles allowing for easy removal - there is no glue or screen printing on the bottles which facilitates easy recycling. Naturally we support all recycling initiatives.
We are in the process of developing a revolutionary light weight 5 litre bottle that will be the lightest bottle in SA, using 35% less pet of the lightest bottle currently available.
WHAT ARE YOUR PLANS FOR A GREENER FUTURE?
In 2014 we plan to produce our own bottles and possibly introduce a new environmentally friendly product to replace the current PET bottle generally used by most bottlers today. It will also significantly reduce the CO2 emissions and contribute to a greener planet.
Future considerations include the use of bio-fuels (produced by ENERCUBE SA) for road transport and, where possible, the use of non-fossil origin biodegradable packaging materials.
Under development and ready by 2015, our new factory will be revolutionary in its utilization of green energies (electric and thermal) to drive all production for various manufacturing processes relating to the packaging industry. This will be the first such facility in the world.
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE YOUR MISSION?
Our mission is to lead by example – 'greening the way forward'.
WE’LL FOLLOW YOUR PROGRESS WITH INTEREST – PERSONALLY I THINK YOUR NEW INITIATIVE DESERVES A STANDING OVATION!
Thank you – we believe our superior product is worthy of all accolades.
