British Water Cooler Association Members
The Water Delivery Company became full members of the British Water Cooler Association in March 2013, when we passed the distributor audit with a 100% scoring.
This is an important next stage in the growth of our water cooler business. Since starting in 2003 we have built up a solid base of loyal customers across London and are the largest independent bottled water cooler company based in the M25.
We see our next stage of growth in becoming ‘The leading hydration company in the UK’ with our brands like The Water Delivery Company, The Water Cooler Company and The Water Filter Company all merging into a core “Drinking Waters” brand.
We strongly believe that the BWCA membership will give our business a solid base from which to make this transition. We also believe that membership will be a great way to show our customers how dedicated we are to high quality standards.
Some of the key points that are covered by the BWCA safety and hygiene accreditation are listed below.
Quality & Safety
The Association’s strict standards provide a guarantee of product safety and quality, supported by an unimpeachable level of service.
BWCA Distributor Members are mandated to carry out regular sanitisation and hygiene visits to coolers, ensuring product safety and quality.
All Members of the BWCA must adhere to strict annual audits relevant to their specific activity be it bottling, distributing or supply of industry products.
Mandatory training in Hygiene Awareness, Food Safety & HACCP for Distribution Depot Managers, Bottling Plant Operation, WRAS for plumbed in (POU) installation and Crisis Management is undertaken by Members to meet audit requirements and ensure members are commited to the highest possible standards.
The BWCA also offers optional industry training to help Members in their businesses including the BWCA Qualified Advisors Training Course.
Environmentally Friendly Practices
To meet European Legislation the BWCA mandates that its Members follow guidelines on the disposal of coolers and related products at the end of their life.
