Daren Waters loved his recent trip to Nigeria, because he
loves visiting the people, the country and the culture. He also enjoys helping entrepreneurs
realize there is a profitable business to be made in bottled water.
Daren has been helping grow Nigeria’s economy for the last

Norland also offers all of the distillation and purification equipment
necessary for any business to put the best tasting product in the can.
“There’s still a huge market opportunity,” Daren said, “as
Nigeria imports more bottled water than it can currently produce.”
