Clearly Canadian is back in a big way. Fueled either by nostalgia or curiosity, the popular 90s premium sparkling water made a significant comeback in 2017. Since then, The Clearly Food & Beverage Company Ltd. has sold over 50 million bottles of refreshing sparkling water. The most requested flavor is Summer Strawberry as pictured above. I always preferred the classic glass bottles over the PET plastic ones.
The Clearly Food & Beverage Company Ltd., the producer of the Clearly Canadian line of premium flavored sparkling waters, announced today that it has shipped more than 50 million bottles of its all-natural sparkling water beverages since its large-scale commercial production re-introduction in 2017.
Fueled by a fan-led online crowd-funding campaign, the cross-border cultural staple of the 90s made an incredible comeback completely led by their beloved consumers. The demand for iconic glass bottles exceeded all expectations and has only continued to grow. To date, the Clearly Canadian distribution footprint has increased to more than 15,000+ retailers across North America, as well as expanded its online Amazon business to over 3,000 cases per month.
“The affinity and loyalty our fans have for Clearly Canadian never ceases to amaze us. Shipping 50 million bottles since 2017 surpassed our expectations and it’s all thanks to our loyal fanbase and retail partners,” said CEO Paul Tepperman. “The continuous demand for our core product, ‘Originals,’ as well as our ‘Clearly Sparkling’ premium sparkling mineral water, which is bottled at source at one of the most awarded springs in Canada and one of the most awarded in the world, is what fuels Clearly Canadian to grow and innovate. The recent return of ‘Summer Strawberry,’ the #1 most requested flavor by our fans, is the first launch of our long-term innovation agenda.”
Fun Fact: Clearly Canadian made some remarkable appearances in the big three of 1990s pop culture phenomena — Seinfeld, Sex and the City, and Friends.
