Bottled Water

A lot of local bakeries are operating in Pakistan but ‘Gourmet’ is a popular brand as it is operates in locally and internationally. The company is providing bakery items, sweets, fizzy drinks, water, catering and much more.The Gourmet water is very popular, especially in Lahore but the city was shocked when Pakistan Council of Research for Water Resources (PCRWR) declared that Gourmet and four other bottled water brands are ‘unfit to drink’.

PCRWR released a statement on Monday, where they revealed the names of brands which are unhygienic  and not fit for human consumption. The names of the banned bottled water are as following:

  1. Gourmet Water
  2. Aqua Super Life
  3. Aqua Splash
  4. Marina Drinking Water

Un-pure drinking water has been a big issue for Pakistan. Thats why people drink bottled water, however, we have seen in the news quite ofter about many companies being sealed and were found to be providing contaminated water. To get rid of this issue the Government of Pakistan and Ministry of Science assigned PCRWR for monitoring of bottled water.

The sample of water has been already collected from:

  • Rawalpindi
  • Islamabad
  • Peshawar
  • Lahore
  • Bahawalpur
  • Quetta
  • Karachi

Make sure that the water you’re drinking is safe for drinking otherwise it can cause many diseases.
