Portland-Fresh Spring Water: Nurturing Health, Empowering Community


In the heart of Highgate, St. Mary, a small business is making waves by providing not just water, but a commitment to health and wellness. Meet Jermaine Huell, the visionary behind Portland-Fresh Spring Water, a local venture that is tapping into the pure essence of the Blue Mountains to bring high-quality, naturally alkaline spring water to the community.

Portland-Fresh has a clear vision of providing safe, high-quality water, bottled at the source. Mr. Huell shared that the business focuses on being a committed supplier of superior, healthy products to all customers. “At Portland-Fresh are committed to introduce consumers to authentic healthy products, offer quality products at competitive prices, while generating income to enhance the standard of living in Tremolsworth, and position the business for success in both domestic and international markets.”

Operating from its home in Tremolsworth, Highgate, the business currently employs two full-time staff members and offers a range of bottle sizes to cater to different consumer needs.

However, like many small businesses, Portland-Fresh faces challenges that hinder its growth potential. The use of expensive packaging limits the venture’s ability to advertise and market its products effectively. This is where the partnership with the Social Development Commission (SDC) becomes crucial.

Portland-Fresh has aligned itself with the Highgate Community Development Committee (CDC) and partnered with the SDC to participate in the Local Economic Development Support Programme. This strategic collaboration aims to provide the venture with essential support, capacity development, and a platform to network and promote its products. 

Through this partnership, Portland-Fresh aims to not only overcome these obstacles but also contribute to the socio-economic development of the community. By focusing on product quality, customer service, and value for employees and customers alike, the venture seeks to create a positive impact on the lives of Tremolsworth residents.
