Icelandic Glacial Set to Take Russia by Storm

Icelandic Water Holdings ehf, producers of the award-winning CarbonNeutral® natural spring water Icelandic Glacial, has signed a distribution agreement with influential, Russian beverage distributor, ZAO Nectar-Trade.

Internationally recognized for its award-winning bottle design, exceptional purity and dedication to the environment, Icelandic Glacial has quickly become a firm favorite across North America and Europe, and now plans to make a splash in Russia.

Effective immediately, Icelandic Glacial will begin shipping to outlets in the areas surrounding Moscow and St. Petersburg. Gas station stores including TNK-BP and Lukoil already plan to stock 1liter and 500ml varieties of Icelandic Glacial in both the refrigerated and non-refrigerated aisles.

Icelandic Glacial uses 100% natural green energy in the form of geothermal and hydroelectric power to fuel production. Icelandic Glacial’s label and plastic bottle are 100% recyclable. Earlier this year, the company’s water source was declared certifiably sustainable by Zenith International, Europe’s leading food and beverage consultancy.
