About EON Beverage Group, Inc.

EON Beverage Group, Inc. was founded by Jim Harford, formerly the President of the Seven Up Company. The Bedford, Texas-based company markets bottled water under the brand name "EON." The uniqueness of this product is a new concept called "structured water" whereby the water molecules organize themselves through hydrogen bonding into distinct molecular structures. EON structured water is formed through a proprietary process (patent pending) which alters the molecular structure of purified water. It is a manufactured replication of the natural structures found in all fruits and vegetables as well as new-born infants. This allows the users of EON water to achieve enhanced intra-cellular hydration through significant absorption capability that is crucial for maximum biological activity and improved athletic performance.

In addition, EON Beverage Group, Inc. signed an agreement in July 2005 with Rudy Marketing International to work with Rudy Ruettiger to create a unique line of beverages that take advantage of the desire by consumers of all ages for healthier beverages including lower sugar content. Rudy Ruettiger is best known as the inspiration behind the successful TriStar Pictures movie "Rudy" that detailed his quest to become a student, a football player and a graduate at the University of Notre Dame.
