Clearly: A Canadian Success Story
Water has always loomed large in the collective Canadian psyche. Perhaps it's because we have so much of it. Or because so much of our history has been defined in relation to it. Or maybe it's just the simple fact that for the better part of each calendar year, we get rained, hailed, snowed, sleeted, misted and/or fogged on.
Whatever the case, in 1988, this quirky Canadian passion for water fuelled the humble origins of the Clearly Canadian Beverage Corporation. Based in Vernon, British Columbia, this spirited little start-up introduced a line of sparkling flavoured waters that helped usher in a whole new era in beverages - blazing the trail for what is now known as the Alternative Beverage category, a category currently estimated at $14-billion within North America alone.
Over the years, Clearly Canadian has earned a reputation for innovative sparkling water and packaging, holding its own in an ever increasingly competitive landscape.
The year 2006 has been hailed The Renaissance of Clearly Canadian. With an extensive re-launch of its core brand of sparkling flavoured waters, greater distribution, exciting new products, a humanitarian partnership with the Global Water initiative and a strong new management team, Clearly Canadian is poised to re-establish a strong position within the Alternative Beverage market.
CCBEF is a leading producer of premium beverages, including Clearly Canadian Sparkling Flavored Waters and three enhanced non-carbonated waters: dailyVitamin, dailyEnergy and dailyHydration, which are distributed in the United States, Canada, the Caribbean, Korea, Indonesia, and other countries.
The Clearly Canadian brand has sold over 90 million cases equating to over 2 billion bottles worldwide. Its products are considered “new age” beverages, a category which became identifiable in the mid-1980s. New age beverages are distinguishable from traditional soft drinks in that they generally contain natural ingredients, less sugar, and less or no carbonation. Clearly Canadian's sparkling waters boast of all-natural flavors and no preservatives in keeping with healthier diet trends without sacrificing the same great taste experience that Clearly Canadian consumers have come to expect.
CCBEF has three wholly-owned subsidiaries: CC Beverage (U.S.) Corporation; Clearly Canadian Beverage (International) Corporation; and Blue Mountain Springs Ltd.
Global Water Initiative
CCBEF has partnered with Global Water to provide funding for two projects in Central America. The first project commenced in August 2006 in the small Guatemalan village of Cotzol, home to almost 500 people. The second project is set to take place in a village located in the Nicaraguan highlands. This village requires a combination water supply, sanitation facility and tree planting focus.
