Every factory’s water is examined and inspected on a daily basis.
In addition to ensure safety through chemical analysis and microbial testing, we use sensory analysis to confirm changes in water that cannot be detected by analytical instruments.
Suntory Group’s "Safety Science Institute" collects water needed for products from all of its Japanese factories, analyzes and inspects it on a regular basis, and assures its safety.
There are roughly 140 periodic inspections, including evaluation of Suntory Group’s unique goods, in addition to those under the "Water Supply Law and Water Quality Standards."
Analytical values are useful not only for establishing the quality of water when using it, but also for detecting minor abnormalities in water quality and predicting water quality oscillations by watching them over time.
The Suntory Groupf received ISO/IEC 17025 accreditation in 2015, an international standard that verifies a laboratory’s competence to generate proper test findings for elemental analysis of water.
