The Jano source was discovered in 1988

Our water. Our story.

The JANO spring was discovered around 1988 by Gilbert Légère, who was landowner where the spring is located. Less than a decade later, Lorenzo Morais from Caraquet became the landowner. Mr Morais was a businessman and a politician, and like many, he foresaw that water would be an extremely important resource in the 21st century, as petroleum had been in the 20th century.

Along with members of his family, Lorenzo Morais planned and then built a major bottling plant in Village Blanchard, in northern New Brunswick, approximately one kilometre from the spring’s location. At the time, the bottling plant was one of only a few such plants in the Atlantic Provinces.

During the first few years, bottling was mainly done in the 18.9 litre format, and sales were made throughout the northern part of the province, with a network of private distributors. The plant was certified to the highest standards of the industry at the time.
