KEBS moves to secure water bottling

KEBS Kenya

The Kenya Bureau of Standards has announced plans to introduce a new local secured standardization mark to be used by water bottling companies.

This follows growing concerns over the high number of illegal and unlicensed water-bottling companies in the country.

According to KEBS Managing Director Charles Ongwae, the standards body has only licensed 600 firms to bottle water but there are over one thousand two hundred others conducting the business in the country.

The Standards’ body says water is a sensitive product hence the need to ensure bottlers provide safe and hygienic products to customers.
