Nutrient Water Boys
When founders of Nutrient Water Luke Marget, Brad Wilson and Matt Dennis all left professional careers in law and finance in 2004 and 2005 at age 27 they knew they had made the right choice.
They were keen to enter the health and well-being market and came across enhanced water which had taken off in Japan and North America but had not yet come to Australia.
The guys moved back home and started working from a small office above a suburban garage. It wasn’t long before they moved into a warehouse and then prepared to go national. They had the market to themselves for two years and then in 2008 competition arrived in the form of Coca Cola’ Vitamin water and Schweppes Spring Valley Smart Water.
This beverage category is now worth $100 million a year and Nutrient Water has grown in five years to have 35 full time staff and 30 contractors. The guys pride themselves on innovation so it will be exciting to watch what happens next for Nutrient Water.
