PURCHASE, NY -- PepsiCo Foodservice is testing its new Aquafina Water Station, which the beverage giant unveiled to the industry at the recent National Automatic Merchandising Association's recent NAMA Show at the Las Vegas (NV) convention center.

The Aquafina Water Station enables consumers to dispense customized sparkling or still water with flavors like peach or raspberry lime into refillable personal containers.

The Purchase, NY-based beverage giant has 30 prototypes of the Aquafina Water Station in the market, including three at Penn State University. For the test, half of the machines accept payment and charge $1.39 to fill a 32-fl.oz. bottle, while the remaining half dispense beverages free of charge.

As consumer water consumption and the use of refillable bottles continues to increase -- particularly on campus and in the workplace -- PepsiCo said the test of its Aquafina Water Station is an effort to learn more about consumer preferences and needs in these channels as it makes the Aquafina Water Station accessible to more consumers in the future. 
 
FILL 'ER UP: PepsiCo has partnered with Penn State University to test its Aquafina Water Station in the college campus setting, where refillable bottles are on the upswing in place of bottled water.
