Mineral Rich Bottled & Bulk Water For Export
The Commonwealth of Dominica is widely regarded as the Nature Island among the Caribbean island States. Dominica is also unique in that “Mother Nature” blessed Dominica with abundance of water. As many as eighty rivers pour out along the east and west coastlines of Dominica to the Caribbean Sea, nine of which are regarded as major rivers. The many tributaries that comprise these rivers have given rise to the expression of Dominica as the “Land of 365 Rivers”.
There is an emerging market for the export of fresh bulk water from Dominica to water deficit countries in need of fresh water principally for potable use. The fastest growing segment of bottled water industry; spring water, vitamin flavored water are synonymous with Dominica’s established brand name as Nature Island of the Caribbean, its eco tourism product, its proud history of conservation of the natural environment, its many forest reserves, national parks, and marine parks, facilitate the marketing of such products.
The Government of the Commonwealth of Dominica aims to fully utilize its water resources to advance the economic development of the country.
To this end, the government is seeking investment partners to undertake the following:
- Build the infrastructural requirements for bulk water export.
- Develop additional spring, ground water and surface waters bottling operations for export.
A comprehensive range of fiscal incentives including, tax holidays, waiver of import duty and facilitation services are provided to stimulate investments into water bottling and bulk water export.
