Qanik participated at fine waters yearly summit 2011 at Vidago Palace in Portugal as the only Greenland Iceberg water company and received great admiration for our design for our PET bottle. We were very proud to have the other participants of the fine waters summit to taste our iceberg water and it was enjoyed by everyone.
Greenland to establish a Controlled Origin Designation for one of its primary natural ressources: Water
Naalakkersuisoq / Minister for Industry, Ove-Karl Berthelsen, Destination Avannaa, local premium water producers and Dr. Michael Mascha from FineWaters attended the Greenland Premium Waters Workshop in Ilulissat on November 11, 2010. The workshop was initiated by Destination Avannaa A/S to discuss the current status and future potential of Premium Waters sourced from Greenland.
One of the outcomes of the discussions was for the participants to call for the creation and legal establishment of a Controlled Origin Designation label for all Greenlandic water products within 12 month.
The most ostentatious is the new “Water Bar” at Shinsegae Department Store’s main branch in Sogong-dong, Jung District, where manager and “water adviser” Seo Sung-wan mans the taps. “When I first started this job in August last year, people’s reaction was mostly puzzled, and some were outright dismissive,” he said. “Now perception has changed, and many regular customers even buy premium brands – higher-priced, mineral-enriched labels – in bulk.”
We are very delighted that Dr. Michael Masha, founder of Finewaters.com has visited Greenland.
