Bottled Water/Packaged Beverages Program

Bottled water and other packaged beverages easily accommodate the active lifestyle of today's consumers and are an obvious choice when heading out to after-school or weekend activities. But did you know that there is only one nationally accredited certifying organization for these products?

While many of us probably think of it as drinking water, bottled water is actually considered a food product in the U.S. Like other bottled beverages, it is regulated by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and must adhere to strict quality and labeling guidelines.

NSF International has been testing bottled water products for compliance with federal and state guidelines for many years, and the NSF mark appears on hundreds of bottled water brands, both domestic and imported.
