Icelandic Glacial Water Now Available At Whole Foods Market

Whole Foods now carries Iceland's premium natural spring water.

Icelandic Glacial, the super-premium natural spring water from Iceland, is now available for purchase at Whole Foods Markets across the United States! The award winning water will be sold at locations in California, Oregon, Washington, Arizona, Nevada and Hawaii beginning April 16, where stores will carry 500ml and one-liter bottles of Icelandic Glacial Water.  

“At Icelandic Glacial, we care deeply about bringing our award winning water from Iceland to discerning consumers around the world. Like Whole Foods Market, we take pride in promoting natural and healthy living, which makes the partnership a perfect fit,” commented Jon Olafsson, Chairman and Co-founder, Icelandic Glacial. “Our introduction into this premier natural foods supermarket further demonstrates our commitment to growing our availability in the natural channel.”

Bottled at the source from Iceland’s legendary Ölfus Spring, which was formed more than 5,000 years ago and is shielded from pollution by an impenetrable barrier of lava rock, Icelandic Glacial is the world’s first certified carbon neutral bottled water for both product and operations. Ölfus Spring produces water so pure that nothing is added or taken away. As a result, Icelandic Glacial possesses exceptional balance featuring a naturally low mineral content and a naturally high alkaline pH level of 8.4.

The Ölfus Spring is constantly replenished by rain, snow and ice-melt from the nearby mountains. As such, it has been deemed certifiably sustainable by Zenith International, Europe’s leading beverage consultancy. Icelandic Glacial is further distinguished as the world’s first certified carbon neutral natural spring bottled water for product and operation. Icelandic Glacial uses 100% natural green energy to fuel production delivering a premium bottled water to discerning consumers around the world while maintaining a “net zero” carbon footprint.

As a testament to its exceptional purity, Icelandic Glacial has been selected by Christian Dior as the exclusive hydration agent in the Diorsnow line of skin care products. Icelandic Glacial is distributed in the United States by Anheuser-Busch.
