Valley water company featured on national television

Food Network profiles Trinity

Express Staff Writer

What a job. Get out there in the country side, and sample healthy, home made or indigenous foods, drinks and other comestibles.

There is such a life. Itís found on the Food Network on a show called "Food Finds." The crew hops around the country sampling local fare and finding hidden treasures, like Idahoís Trinity water.

As part of a recent segment of Food Finds, Trinity, whose offices are in Ketchum, but whose source is in nearby Paradise Valley, was highlighted, along with Dorothyís Homemade Jams in Boise.

Trinity Springs is the deepest source for pure, uncorrupted water, in the country. The geothermal water comes naturally to the surface through crystal lined faults from a depth of 2.2 miles below the surface of the earth, within the Idaho Batholith.

The crew from North Carolina spent two days last fall shooting the springs in Paradise. The episode features interviews with Trinity CEO and Ketchum resident Mark Johnson, and his brother Dr. Roy Johnson, who tests the water for purity several times daily while bottling. Ketchum resident and Marketing Director, Sharon Egan is also featured in the episode.

Appearing as on-air "talent" were Ketchum residents, Laura Higdon and her children Kira and Everett Wiethorn and Eganís daughter Makayla Cappel. Egan said the producer from the Food Network was the "most thorough producer Iíve ever worked with."

The spot pointed out many features particular to Trinity, including its unique geothermal source, its sterile bottling features, the protective source house, the nearby natural hot spring pool, and the fact that the water is totally free from contaminants.

As one visitor said after tasting the water in the Food Finds spot, "Itís brilliant."
