Red Star Brands
Our mission at Red Star Brands is to stay ahead of the curve when it comes to the next generation of snack and beverage brands. We are a UK distributor and we work to support disruptive brands in their journey to UK-wide distribution.
Founded in 2015 by Jaden Smith, son of Hollywood actor Will Smith, JUST Water was born from a mutual passion for making things cleaner, safer and better for everyone. Composed of 54% paper from FSC (Forest Stewardship Council) certified forests and 28% plant based bio-plastic made from sugarcane.
JUST Water’s 82% renewable content helps keep carbon emissions low as production demands significantly less fossil fuel for production compared with traditional PET bottles. In the UK, the still spring water itself is bottled from a sustainable source in Ballymena, Northern Ireland and distributed throughout the UK by Red Star Brands. Clark McIlroy, managing director at Red Star Brands, said: “JUST Water has made a real impact since it launched in the UK last year and we are excited to see demand for the brand grow. Consumers are becoming increasingly aware of their plastic consumption and the alternative packaging solutions which are now available thanks to brands like JUST Water.
JUST inspires people to do good and feel good by making conscious choices that help people and the planet. Essentially, JUST is 82% renewable, fully recyclable and refillable – One carton might not save the world, but it’s a start.www.redstarbrands.co.uk
