BOTTLED water company Nongfu Spring said yesterday it had decided to cease production of barreled water in Beijing permanently following a temporary suspension order imposed by the capital's quality watchdogs in a dispute over standards.

The company said that nearly 100,000 residents in the city who had prepaid would be given five 4-liter bottles of its water produced in other provinces instead of their usual 19-liter barrel. A 19-liter barrel cost 20 yuan (US$3.2) while five 4-liter bottles cost 35 yuan.

"Nongfu Spring decided not to cause a loss to our customers or to lower our head to media attacks," Zhong Shanshan, the company's CEO and board chairman, told a press conference in Beijing. "We can't produce water under such circumstances."
