Blog: Chris Brook-CarterFor Sale - Redundant tap fixtures

Chris Brook-Carter | 30 March 2004

The recent scandal surrounding Coke’s sourcing of its bottled water brand Dasani from the mains water supply in the UK has given water companies an idea.

Thames Water, which supplies London with its tap water, (and indeed Coke with Dasani) has announced plans to enter the water cooler market.

The Financial Times reports today that the company has sent out a circular to businesses offering them the opportunity to “save over 50% on water cooler bills by installing a new cooler connected directly to the mains supply.”

The irony. If only you could bottle and sell that.
