ATLANTA, August 13 /PRNewswire-HISPANIC PR WIRE/ — Keep cool and hydrated this summer with BONAFONT(TM), Mexico’s leading bottled water brand(1), and BONAFONT Levité(TM), a line of lightly flavored water beverages, now available at grocery stores and mass merchandisers across Texas. BONAFONT and BONAFONT Levité are the first Mexican bottled water beverages to be distributed in the U.S.

BONAFONT is a low-sodium, soft water. Water, like BONAFONT, helps eliminate what the body does not need. Maintaining an adequate level of hydration is important because water transports nutrients to the body’s cells and transports waste from the cells. The lightly flavored water beverage, BONAFONT Levité is available in two flavors: BONAFONT Levité Lime and BONAFONT Levité Jamaica, an authentic Mexican flavor made of dried hibiscus flowers. BONAFONT Levité Jamaica is the first jamaica-flavored still bottled water beverage to be sold in the U.S.

“We were very excited with the response received when we announced the U.S. launch of BONAFONT in Houston earlier this year,” said Maximiliano Kassai, Business Director for BONAFONT USA. “We believe that BONAFONT and BONAFONT Levité will be a favorite among Texans and we look forward to enhancing our distribution to other cities in the near future.”

BONAFONT is available in 500 ml, 1 liter and 1.5 liter size bottles. Additionally, BONAFONT Levité(TM) in lime and jamaica flavors is available in 1.5 liter size bottles. Both are available at grocery stores and mass merchandisers throughout Texas.

BONAFONT and BONAFONT Levité are being distributed by Mexilink Inc., a leading national importer and distributor of Mexican products located in Houston, Texas.
