Waiakea Water is a powerhouse bottled water company stationed on the big island of Hawaii. Introduced to the global market back in 2012, Waiakea Water is sourced from an aquifer located at the base of Mauna Loa. The aquifer produces water naturally filtered through miles of volcanic rock. The filtration not only makes the water 100% alkaline but infuses it with natural vitamins and minerals. From a health perspective it is some of the healthiest water one can drink. This is a big plus for Waiakea because bottled water is highly focused on health aspects.

 

 

Bottled water circumvented tap years ago. One of the chief reasons people replaced purchased water for the working water out of every faucet in their house was based on health. Tap water is not filtered, it is not purified, and it also contains chemicals like fluoride. As society began to lean more and more towards healthier living in the 90s the popularity of bottle water began to grow. Now it is a market worth ten billion dollars. Every company selling bottled water has to work hard to stand out because they are all selling the exact same product. One way to that it to offer health advancing quality. Drinking water that actually makes your body healthier.

 

A recent trend in the health considerations of water is pH balance. pH refers to the acidity in the water. Water with too much acidity is not healthy for you. Alkaline water helps the body retain balance and the big movement in the bottled water world is finding brands that respect pH. Luckily for volcanic water benefits their chief quality is 100% alkaline. Waiakea is one of the only brands out there that offers complete pH balance in its water. This makes it very health to drink and makes it stand out from the competition.

 

The company came from the discovery of one Ryan Emmons, a frequent vacationer of Hawaii. His family owned property with access to the Mauna Loa aquifer. Emmons noticed that the aquifer water was special, and being a health advocate himself he decided to share his find with the world.

In the quest to ensure a smooth running of activities in the finance industry, David Zalik formed GreenSky  in the year 2006. He intended to make a company that would render credit services to the general public without exploiting them. This was after observing the way the financial institutions in the sector exploited the loan consumers by offering them extortionate rates that left them in a more financially unstable position than they were before borrowing. The other reason that persuaded David Zalik into the establishment of GreenSky  was the fact that the process of loan application had been so long that the customers of the credit services spend more than a week waiting for their loans to be approved.

After keen observation of these issues, Zalik decided that he would do business in an unusual way so that he could get different results from the existing ones. The first notable thing that he implemented in GreenSky  was to make the company a wholesale credit service provider. This meant that instead of trying to reach the target customers, the organization would rely on the smaller financial lenders, contractors, and the wholesale merchants, who would wish to provide their services to their clients on credit terms but lacked the capacity. GreenSky would act as an assurance to these merchants and small creditors so that they could maintain their clients through the provision of the credit services while at the same time, GreenSky  benefits from the wide market of the firms.

One thing that has led to the flourishing of GreenSky  is the strategy that the company’s CEO uses to market their services. Instead of using the media for promotion and advertisements like the other companies prefer, Zalik and his team of employees focus on building relationships with the stakeholder of the target organizations. This makes it easier for GreenSky  to engage in viable contracts with the firms and as a result, benefit mutually. GreenSky has tremendously benefited from this initiative because it has been able to transfer its credit risk to the smaller firms while at the same time, it leverages the broader credit markets of the merchants.

The process of aging has long been viewed as something that is entirely unavoidable. Jason hope is looking to make a difference in the way that the world views aging. He believes that within our lifetimes it may be possible for individuals to halt and even reverse the aging process. However, this will not be possible without growing our understanding of the process of aging.

Jason hope is an entrepreneur who is a native of the state of Arizona. He continues to live there today he runs his business. He is also an avid futurist who supports the development of new technologies through his entrepreneurial endeavors. In particular, Jason hope is a strong proponent of biotechnology and the potential that it represents in changing our understanding of the aging process.

He recently donated $500,000 to a research foundation that is devoted to enhancing our understanding of the process of aging. The organization used this money in order to build a new laboratory at the University of Cambridge. At this new laboratory, the organization began to do research looking at metabolic waste products known as advanced glycation end products. Over the course of a human’s lifetime, advanced glycation end products build up within their tissues. This buildup of advanced glycation end products will eventually lead to the hardening of our body’s tissues and is a contributing factor in a number of ailments.

Jason hope stated that this new research was able to identify the most common metabolic waste products that build up in human tissues and has even begun to develop potential treatment protocols that can help to eliminate their presence from our bodies. The research that is being done at these laboratories is very different from the typical research that is done by the traditional medical community. In the traditional medical community, it is common to only look for treatments that target symptoms rather than the underlying causes of the symptoms.

If these substances are able to be eliminated from the human body, it will be possible to significantly increase the lifespans of individuals who have been affected by these metabolic waste products.

In addition to funding for research Jason hope also helps to fund efforts to influence the way that aging is perceived around the world. He believes that if you can get people to look at the process of aging differently than it will be possible to attract a greater interest in its treatment.

Eating food is way of life and we all do it by natural instinct. Whether it’s homemade, or it comes served from a restaurant, we all have to eat in order to survive. Did you know that many of today’s top restaurants receive their food products from the same foodservice provider? Have you ever heard of OSI Group? This company is ranked as one of the world’s best food providers, and it specializes in custom-food solutions. What are custom-food solutions? These products are created through ideas, and they’re very unique, especially when being compared to standard foods. Restaurants, grocery stores and other retailors actually sell custom-food products on a daily basis.

OSI Group just so happens to be a global leader in the subject at hand. This company can literally take your idea of a food product and then turn it into an actual product. OSI Group has been successfully doing this for a very long. In its earlier days, the company was only into selling fresh beef. As word began to spread, the company expanded its product line and went toward the wholesale food market. McDonald’s was one of OSI’s first high-profile clients back in the day. Thanks to having such of a good business relationship, OSO Group was chosen as one of the hamburger-giant’s main suppliers for beef. This contract came after cryogenics, but the meats were too good to pass-up. Some of the other high-profile clients are KFC, Burger King, Yum, Subway, Starbucks and Pizza Hut. Of course, the list goes on and on, but you can get a better understanding of how valuable this company is.

Most other food providers may do a great job with distribution or development, but will lack in other areas. OSI Group does great in all departments. This includes development, distribution, processing and management. Every single step of the logistics process is being handled, and it’s being handled to the highest degree. This company outperforms its competitors in all phases of production thanks to its myriad of facilities that are placed all over the globe. Service is very prompt and customer service can handle any issue. OSI Group has the game on lock, and it will continue to do so in the coming years.
