Our water production process is hazard analysis critical control point (HACCP) compliant and, therefore, is able to supply any World Trade Organisation country with the purest natural spring water, coded for complete traceability.
MountainTop is tested in-house on a daily basis and is also periodically tested at independent ISO9000-compliant laboratories. These stringent quarterly tests are done to ensure the maintenance of international standards for chemical and microbiological content. In our state-of-the-art treatment plant, the water is ﬁltered at source through in situ (i.e. in position) ﬁltration.
It is further ﬁltered using a stainless steel mesh ﬁlter. Charged particles are removed with a magnetiser, and ultra-violet sterilisation and ozonation complete the microbiological treatment process.
Our stainless plant equipment is sanitised only with approved sanitisers.
Custom-designed German engineering seals the spring directly at source. The sand ﬁlter removes the largest contaminants prior to the water entering the processing plant. Water is then piped directly to begin the process of creating superior quality.
The magnetiser attracts anything with a magnetic charge.
The ﬁne micron mesh stainless steel ﬁlter sifts to remove any last traces.
Ultraviolet bulbs emit UV radiation to destroy microbes through sterilisation. At this stage the water can be tested.
The ozonator performs two tasks: it starves organisms of oxygen, and uses atmospheric oxygen to produce ozone. Ozone remains in the water for a number of hours, then returns to its natural state.
Blowing & Labelling
Brand new bottles are blown at the plant, just prior to ﬁlling. After this operation is complete, the labels are applied prior to washing.
With ozone still present in the water, there are no contaminants left and the bottles undergo a ﬁnal washing.
Our high speed, automated production line enables us to fulﬁll large volume orders for MountainTop as well as custom label requests.
After ﬁlling and coding, the capping procedure marks the ﬁnal stage in product assembly. Caps may be screw tops for the 1.5 and 5 litre bottles, or they may be the popular sports closure caps found on the 500ml bottles. Regardless of the type, each cap is tamper-evident for your safety.
To consistently maintain safety and quality standards, each bottle of MountainTop is digitally imprinted with a trace code consisting of a product expiration date and a batch number so that accurate product life tracking can be implemented. As an added measure, random tests are done in-house at the plant on a daily basis, and periodically by an external auditor, Technological Solutions Ltd., Jamaica.
Cartons & Shrink-wrapping
To complete the packaging and to protect the ﬁnished product as it makes it way to local and regional consumers, the bottles are placed in a corrugated cardboard tray and shrink-wrapped in strong plastic ﬁlm, then palletised, for clean, eﬃcient bulk transportation.
We oﬀer palletised and shrink-wrapped bulk orders for worldwide distribution.
Distribution & Sales
Our marketing and distribution is supported by a diligent, eﬃcient and dedicated sales staﬀ, supplying retail outlets, oﬃces, hotels and resorts throughout St. Vincent, the Grenadine Islands and beyond.
