    OK, let’s play a game. It’s called Find A Water Company Not Owned By Nestle. Anyone reading this comment should feel free to play, suggestions to start are Aquafina and Dasani. First one to find a spring water company NOT owned by Nestle gets a secret prize. Go!

    Those two do not count, Adam! Those are filtered water, not spring water. Aquafina belongs to Coca-Cola, I believe. Anybody can filter water. The brands I mentioned are all Natural Springs.

    Take a look at the Nestle website…they also have acquired International brands such as Acqua Panna, Perrier and (gasp!) S. Pellegrino. Locally, for you Californians, Calistoga.

    Now the “investigator” in me is getting curious. I’m wondering how the supplying of the tour-bus works. Do you actually own the bus and just purchase things on the road as you need it or is the bus part of a contracted service? If it’s a service then perhaps they contract with specific suppliers. I’m not saying it’s a Nestle conspiracy – but it just seems a bit too coincidental. Unless, Nestle truly owns most of the spring water production! Things that make you go “Hmmmm?”

    To complete the list of Nestle-owned bottled H2O: Calistoga, Ozarka and Zephyrhills (unique to Florida. Nestle is the largest bottled water company in the U.S.
    One that isn’t owned by them is NAYA from Canada.

    Checked the kitchen in my office. We have several natural and mineral waters. None of the companies is controlled or run by Nestlé. I’m talking about Germany.

    Belmont Springs appears to not be owned by Nestle.
