"Free For All is Malaysia's 1st Brand of Free Mineral Water. With consumers spending approximately USD 100 Billion per year on bottled water globally, we aim to make one of the most in-demand commodities in the world free again. After all, water is a need. In many developing countries like Malaysia, where there is not a safe source of tap water, bottled water becomes a somewhat trusted option. In other words, Malaysians have no other choice but to purchase water. However, with Free For All.. attention is all that you pay for. It’s easier to find free wifi than free water these days”
