This page is designed to provide specific information to those interested in either bottling water in the state of Louisiana for distribution in- or out-of-state or distributing bottled water manufactured out-of-state within the state of Louisiana. Bottled water is handled somewhat differently from other foods because water is a product that undergoes no additional processing (reheating, cooking, et cetera) prior to consumption.
The documents below are designed to guide you through the process of either opening a new bottled-water manufacturing facility in the state of Louisiana or obtaining a product registration for bottled-water products imported from out-of-state. Please select the packet that best suits your needs.
