The consumer is now attracted by less sugared, more natural, healthiest beverages. Those new more challenging to produce. Microorganisms brought by packaging (preforms, caps) into the product may affect their microbial stability, generating spoilage, in sensitive products like treated bottled water, natural fruit juices ... As soon as the water needs any demineralization or reverse osmosis treatment, its natural microbial balance is affected. Germs contained in packages do not have to compete anymore against the original flora which has been eliminated, they can grow. Hygiene on the line and in packaging is a must.  How does the water quality impact the quality of your beverages?  The water constitutes more than 90% of most beverages.  The quality of water affects taste and smell of the product and consequently strongly impacts the final drink quality and the brand.
