Clearer Water supplies water which is drawn from a deep aquifer and naturally filtered through cretaceous limestone formed 400 million years ago as part of the famous Antrim Plateau.
Bottled on-site at its manufacturing plant at Magheramorne, just outside Larne, it is a perfectly balanced pH 7.8 alkaline spring water rich in essential minerals.
Apart from producing premium, traceable and ethical bottled water, Clearer Water also prides itself as a socially responsible employer and champions a mixed ability workforce, providing training and career development for additional needs and socially disadvantaged young people.
