An Interview with Messias Pedro of Reds Dairy- Massachusetts, USA

"I think the bottled water industry in my area is headed in a positive direction. Bottled water is a healthy choice for those on the go, which is a large majority of America", reported Messias Pedro when we spoke with him about his experiences and thoughts about choosing Norland and investing in the bottled water industry. Read below to learn more about Messias and his interview with Norland.

1. Would you please tell us a little about yourself-family, friends, where you grew up, and hobbies, etc?

A: I was born in the Azores island of Sao Miguel. At the age of six my family moved to American seeking the American dream. We lived in the city of Fall River, Massachusetts with my father and older brother. I worked at the family dairy farm at the age of twelve. I had always dreamed of having my own business. I worked hard for seven days a week at the dairy farm and saved my earnings to have my own business. I ended up having my very first retail store, Reds Dairy, in Fall River, MA.

2. What prompted you to think about and eventually decide to go into the bottled water business?

A: Owning retail stores made me think about selling my own product. I want to sell my product in my current stores and other businesses out there.
