Eau de Vie, the water brand marketed in the UK by Classeq, has landed a contract with Angela Harnett’s Cafe Murano in London.
The company will provide the award-winning restaurant with a back-of-house medium remote system, which can produce up to 80 litres of filtered water an hour.
Cafe Murano will now provide all of its customers with specially filtered, fresh, chilled still or sparkling water as it looks to personalise its bottled waters and adopt a more sustainable approach to waste and packaging as part of its wider green policy.
David Smithson, CEO of Eau de Vie, said the hospitality industry was waking up to the environmental and financial consequences of using bottled water.
“We estimate that a litre of bottled water costs up to 55p to buy in, store correctly and then dispose of the packaging while a litre of filtered water is just 5p – the maths are far from hard!,” he said.
“And, don’t let’s forget storage issues, and that sustainability is increasingly becoming a business imperative. Water is a good place to start and increasingly, we are seeing restaurateurs wake up to the opportunities that personalisation on site can give them.”
Eau de Vie’s filtered water system is plumbed directly into the main water line and bespoke designed to fit every site.
