Why do Singaporeans even bother with bottle water when even the water from our toilet taps is cleaner?
Channel News Asia report says that some famous mineral water in Singapore is actually bottled tap water from Malaysia. You can read the paper: http://www.channelnewsasia.com/news/singapore/singapore-s-s-134m-bottled-water-addiction/3364034.html
“While some of these bottled water products are derived from mineral-rich springs, a significant number – including market leaders like F&N’s Ice Mountain and Coca-Cola’s Dasani – are sourced from public water supplies. These two brands made up more than half of the bottled water sales volume in Singapore last year, according to Euromonitor data.
When contacted, F&N confirmed that Ice Mountain sold in Singapore “is sourced and packed in Malaysia from tap water”, while Coca-Cola said that Dasani produced for the Singapore market comes from “the local water supply at (its) facility in Malaysia”. Both companies also said they have multiple purification processes in place, which distinguishes their “pure drinking water” from tap water.”
Should Singaporeans pay so much money just to drink tap water from our neighbouring country? Don’t be stupid!
