Voss Water is a Norwegian brand of bottled water that is the brainchild of two friends who grew up in Oslo, Norway. Those two friends are Ole Christian Sandberg and Christopher Harlem. They came up with the idea of bottling up pure Norwegian artesian water because Norway has a pristine environment and has some of the best springs and artesian water sources in the world.
As with the other Norwegians, they believed that it was their benefit to enjoy their pure tasting drinking water and sharing it to other consumers around the world will be a big hit. With that in mind, Sandberg and Harlem came up with an iconic bottle design to match the purity of the Norwegian water and Voss Water was born.

The cylindrical glass bottle of Voss Water was designed by Neil Kraft. According to Voss, their manufacturing process for the bottle is completely carbon neutral, which means it has zero carbon footprint. Aside from glass bottles, plastic bottles are also used in packaging, but the cylindrical design is retained. It is also worth noting that all Voss Water bottles are also fully recyclable, including their iconic glass bottle.
The availability of Voss Water in plastic bottles enabled the brand to reach more consumers because plastic is more convenient compared to glass. There are also places where glass bottles are prohibited, that is why the need for plastic bottles came up. The plastic bottles that Voss uses are free from BPA, which is a compound that are considered toxic to humans.
Voss may be a municipality and a traditional district in Norway, but Voss water is not bottled there. It is bottled by Voss of Norway ASA, which is an American Limited Company based in New York City.

From Norway, the two friends’ vision has become a global reality as Voss Water is now available in over fifty countries around the world.
