Known as The Beer of Costa Rica, Imperial, produced by Florida Ice and Farm Company (FIFCO) in Heredia, is a popular choice for ticos and tourists alike. But now there's another reason to drink this lager-style beverage: Imperial has just been declared to be the worlds first beer to be water positive!
So what does this mean exactly? According to FIFCO:
Being 'Water Positive' means having strategies in place to contribute with water conservation. "Imperial has managed to reduce over 44% the consumption of water in its manufacturing process, with the help of investments in high technology equipment, and the establishment of good environmental practices regarding the adequate use of this vital liquid." - Gisela Sanchez, Director of Corporate Relations, FIFCO
