We spoke with Steve Pettaras, the scientific mind behind Australia’s premier alkaline water product Alka Power about the misconceptions in the bottled water market, and how success doesn’t guarantee safety.
A printer by trade, Steve Pettaras founded one of Australia’s most awarded print organisations. Steve’s passion for fitness and wellbeing led him to become a certified personal trainer, back in the 1990’s also a 1st Dan black belt in taekwondo and competitive kart/ race car driver competing throughout Australia for many years. Steve was a finalist in the eastern region for the 2005 Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the year awards for being the first in Australia to produce an alkaline water that didn't contain bicarbonate. Married to wife and Director of Alka Power, Rebecca, the pair work together to drive the success of their unique alkaline water business, Alka Power and raise their two young daughters, Grace and Ruby.
