In the early 1990's the owners of Blue Keld bought the land around the spring to grow potatoes - little did they realize that 10 years later there would be another successful venture which would also develop from the land.
The spring on this land proved to be of excellent quality and so the idea of bottling water in this fast growing market became a reality. Through hard work and commitment the business grew, as did the premises, and Blue Keld now has the capability to service customers both large and small in the UK and Worldwide.
In August 2003, Blue Keld Springs Ltd entered a new era.
The company was acquired by J Marr Limited, a Hull based family business whose roots lay in the deep sea fishing industry. With the gradual decline of the fishing industry, J Marr Limited had diversified their business interests to include a number of other activities, ice cube production being one. The need for a supply of Spring water for ice production lead them to the door of Blue Keld Springs.
Blue Keld Natural Mineral Water was born, and now over 10 years later has a strong UK customer base and with a strong ‘can do’ attitude to export, has established distribution in over 15 countries. Blue Keld Spring Water Ice Cubes have been on the market since 2005 and have experienced rapid growth due to demand for a premium ice cube.
Blue Keld Springs Ltd is part of the J Marr Group along with The Ice Co group of companies. The Ice Co is the largest ice manufacturer in Europe and The Ice Co Storage & Logistics is the growing temperature controlled storage and logistics arm of the group.
