Lifespan Company Limited is a leading Jamaican manufacturer and trader in Naturally Alkaline Spring Water. The privately-owned company was incorporated in 2005, and started manufacturing and trading in 2006. The company was founded by husband and wife team Devon and Nayana Williams.
The exclusive naturally alkaline spring water bottled by Lifespan flows from the foothills of the Northern Blue Mountains in Portland, Jamaica. The Blue Mountain Range is the longest mountain range in Jamaica and can catch up to minimum of 77 inches of rainfall per year. Located at the base of the range is the Spring Garden Aquifer which is home to Lifespan Company Limited. Lifespan Spring Water comes from one of seven springs on the property. The flow rate for this spring is over 900 gallons per minute or 473 million gallons per year. Every drop of this water has been naturally filtered by mineral rocks for over a decade and a half making it pure and oxygenated. This process is also responsible for the natural alkalinity of Lifespan Spring Water. The high consistent alkalinity is important in distinguishing Lifespan as a healthy superior tasting water.
Currently, the company is abstracting a small fraction of what its license allows, which means that Lifespan has a huge potential for further expansion. It is that potential that Lifespan wishes to exploit by touting its water’s healthful qualities, as well as its higher alkalinity character in relation to the world’s other bottled waters. Lifespan water has a higher pH value (a measure of acidity or alkalinity in which the pH of pure water is 7, with lower numbers indicating acidity and higher numbers indicating alkalinity) than most brands in the western hemisphere. In fact, the company favourably contrasts its water’s pH of 7.9 to 8.4, against the world-leading, brand of spring waters.
Lifespan Spring Water is the only local brand of water regularly tested by the Bureau of Standards Jamaica, and we are able to produce reports from independent testers for quality assurance. It is also the only local brand of water certified by the National Sanitation Foundation (NSF) International. For two consecutive years, Lifespan won the 2020 and 2021 GRAND GOLD INTERNATIONAL QUALITY AWARD from MONDE SELECTION – International Quality Institute (Europe), a testament to the product’s quality. Lifespan is also a member of the International Bottled Water Association.
