Watsons Water also rolls out the newly innovated “Watsons Fill and Go Smart Water Dispensing Station” this year, to bring a more eco-friendly choice for the businesses and organizations who want to show care to their employees by embracing their health concern and safety needs. We will also extend the scheme to introduce safe and quality distilled water into public organizations and schools to promote waste reduction and sustainability development.
