Our Heritage

Having read Agriculture and Food Marketing at Newcastle University, I returned to my family farm in 1988 and twelve months later decided to diversify the farming business by packing mineral water into cuplets for the airline industry. From then, the company grew, and Radnor Hills was officially born in 1990.

Now after over 30 years since our first bottle was poured, we supply over 250 UK wholesalers and some of the UK’s biggest supermarkets.

We have a passion for making the simplest of things taste great and now we have created a wide range of products in various packaging formats including plastic, glass, TETRA Pak cartons and cans, all filled with our very own Welsh spring water, fruit juices, flavoured waters, functional waters, infused waters, healthy children’s drinks and premium adult presses. 

Our core business values are:

  • Our People – our local area is very tight knit, and it is essential to us to support our employees and their families in anyway we can. Whether it is funding the refurbishment of our local gym or partnering with worthwhile charities close to our employees’ hearts. 
  • Our Environment – We are a Zero to landfill site, we have planted 14,000 trees in the last 4 years on our farm and we are constantly doing what we can to improve our environmental impact.
  • Our Products – At Radnor, we aim to create products that people associate with great flavour and the very best quality. It is important to us when developing our soft drinks that we use the best available ingredients to create products we can be really proud of.

As a Welsh business we love to be associated with Wales and the beautiful surroundings it has to offer. We are fortunate Radnorshire is our home and it is an area of the world we are very proud of.

From us all at Radnor, 


William Watkins, Farmer and Managing Director of Radnor Hills.
