CanO Water

We met the CanO Water team in the summer of 2017 and instantly felt that we could impact such a well-timed and beautifully designed product.

In a climate where we are all concerned about the negative impact of plastic on the environment, the idea of water in a can clearly offered huge potential if positioned correctly.


The Plan

We worked with the team at CanO Water to define our primary sales targets and we agreed that a combination of Food Service plus at least one major retailer was the best way to launch.



Price positioning within Food Service can often be challenging due to the multiple tiers to get to shelf. Accordingly, we advised some practical packaging changes to achieve a more appealing price point. Working together we achieved this and subsequently landed deals with Bidfood, Brakes and Compass, opening the door to thousands of food service sites nationwide.


Growing Distribution

On the supermarket front we debated whether the same strategy would work. Following a meeting with Tesco we discussed a slightly different format to offer the greatest consumer appeal. Together, with a well-thought out proposition, supported by market data, we achieved a listing in almost 700 Tesco stores (Summer 2018).

The Future

Within our first year working together, we have all achieved a very solid base from which to continue growing the brand. We are confident that we can deliver more great things in the coming years.
