Why is the Evian mineral drink getting so expensive?
Posted On July 3, 2021
When the Evians were introduced in 1997, many people thought the product was “worth it”.
It’s been a huge hit with consumers, with the drinks being sold in supermarkets and restaurants across the country and even the ABC’s Dr Phil show had a taste of the drink’s appeal.
But in recent years, the product has come under fire for its high price tags, and some health experts have called for its removal from supermarket shelves.
The company is currently facing an investigation into allegations of misleading advertising, and it was recently revealed the company is paying an extra $10 million to cover claims the drinks are unsafe.
In a statement, the company said the claims were “inaccurate and misleading”.
“We apologise for any confusion or inconvenience this has caused our customers,” it said.
“Our commitment to protecting our customers’ health and wellbeing is the core of our philosophy.”
In an email to News Corp, the ABC said the company had “firmly denied the allegations and is fully cooperating with the investigation”.
The ABC also said a spokesperson for the company did not respond to an email seeking comment on the investigation.
