bottled water certification program NSF intl.

Arabian Beverage Co. Ltd.’s entire product line has been tested and certified to NSF Intl.’s Bottled Water Certification Program.

To earn NSF certification, Arabian Beverage Co.'s plant in Subhan, Kuwait, underwent a rigorous audit to verify that the bottling facility met all certification requirements, including Good Manufacturing Practices (GMP) and Hazard Analysis and Critical Control Points (HACCP), which are internationally recognized food safety standards. NSF also tested samples of Arabian Beverage Co. bottled water products against the U.S. Food and Drug Administration Bottled Water Code of Federal Regulations for more than 180 chemical, inorganic, radiological and microbiological contaminants.

Bottled water products meeting all of the above certification requirements are authorized to bear the NSF certification mark and are included on NSF's website. To view Arabian Beverage Co.’s certification listing, visit NSF’s website

NSF product certification for bottled water is among the most stringent requirements of all the international organizations we reviewed. It has helped us integrate quality into every aspect of our operations to ensure the highest standards,” said Samer Shalaby, deputy general manager (manufacturing) for Arabian Beverage Co.

To maintain certification, NSF’s Bottled Water Certification program requires annual product testing and unannounced facility audits that cover every aspect of a bottler's operation, from the source of the water through the disinfection and treatment process, including the container closure process.
