James the Sales Director at LUQEL. He is an expect at pioneering and revolutionizing the drinking water industry, with a great tasting and sustainable solution.

About LUQEL:

The LUQEL story began when our founder Josef Schucker saw first-hand just how many plastic bottles have polluted the world’s oceans. LUQELS has a mission to reduce the global annual consumption of plastic bottles by 5 billion per annum from 2026.

Understanding that people will always want to enjoy mineralised water, founder Josef Schucke questioned whether disposable plastic bottles were necessary to fulfil that need.

Sustainability is very much at the heart of what we do – and why we do it, at LUQEL.
