Refresh Group (RGP) is Australia’s largest producer of steam-distilled drinking water. Refresh is an Australian-owned company and has been in operation since 1997. The company has three processing locations and can produce 140,000 litres of distilled water per day. Refresh began operations in 1997. In October 2005, Refresh acquired Drink-Pure in Toowoomba, Queensland.

Refresh differentiates itself from its competitors by processing its water using a steam distillation method, viewed as the most effective method of purifying water. Refresh's bottled water is the only such product endorsed by Kidney Health Australia.

Refresh targets the home and office delivery market as well as the retail sector. In the home and office delivery market, RGP competes with Neverfail (owned by Coca-Cola Amatil Limited) and Palm Springs Limited, as well as smaller operators. In the retail sector, competitors include Coco-Cola Amatil's Mt Franklin and Pump Brands and Cadbury Schweppes' Cool Ridge.

Refresh Group Limited is a distributor of lifestyle products like bottled water, coolers and filtration systems. It is an Australian-owned and operated company and has been in operation since 1997. In March 2006, it listed on the stock market - the Australian Securities Exchange (ASX) under the code RGP.

Its main business is bottled water. Refresh Pure Water is Australia’s largest producer of distilled drinking water with a capacity to produce more than 10,000 litres of distilled water per hour. It has factories in Western Australia (Perth and Kalgoorlie), New South Wales (Sydney), Victoria (Melbourne) and Queensland (Brisbane and Toowoomba).

5L packs of its Moores Ultrapure Water is sold in most Woolworths supermarkets and selected Coles supermarkets throughout Queensland, New South Wales, Australian Capital Territory and Victoria. Retail packs of Refresh Pure Water are also sold in a number of Coles and IGA supermarkets in Western Australia.

Refresh also markets a super-oxygenated water. Oxyfresh uses a unique process to energise pure water through a GIE activator. The oxygen content is then increased by up to 700%. Add to this Himalayan crystal salt containing 84 elements essential for good health and you have a crisp tasting, refreshing energy drink without the sugar. Another brand of bottled water marketed by the company is Sun-shower Springs. This premium spring water is available for home and office deliveries in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne.

Distilled water has many applications where a very high level of water purity is required. These include for sterilisation in autoclaves, equipment where pure water is essential, e.g. CPAP machines, steam irons and colloidal silver generators, engineering companies for hydrostatic testing and laser cutting, wet cell batteries and radiators, etc. Our distilled water is guaranteed to have less than 1 part per million of total dissolved solids.

Refresh also provides contract bottling of private labels. It has been packing for the WA Water Corporation since 2000. Many other companies use bottled water as a promotional product with their own custom-designed labels.
Another division, Oz Water Filters, stocks the widest range of water purifiers in Australia. The range includes sediment and carbon filters, reverse osmosis, distillers and air-to-water generators.

These include portable as well as plumbed-in units. The wide variety ensures a drinking water solution to suit every requirement or budget. Distributorships held include AirQua from Singapore, Woongjin Coway from Korea, Durastill and Forever Water from United States, Precision Water Systems from Canada and Megahome from Taiwan.
