Beware of Counterfeit Zam Zam Water

As Ramadan nears and the tradition of breaking fast with Zam Zam water becomes more common, there is growing concern about the authenticity of the water being sold.

Over the past few years, the Saudi Arabian government has seized millions of counterfeit Zam Zam water bottles produced within the kingdom. As a result, several bottling plants have been closed down, and some countries, like Malaysia, have prohibited the sale of Zam Zam water due to the widespread distribution of fake products.

In 2023, the Malaysian government issued a poster stating that the reselling of Zam Zam water was unauthorised as Saudi Arabia had prohibited its trade and export.

Although there are a few licensed sellers of Zam Zam water in South Africa, reports suggest that most of it being sold here may be counterfeit. Investigations have revealed instances where the packaging and labelling of the water seemed authentic, but the water inside did not match the expected quality. Consumers reported discrepancies in taste, the presence of sand particles, and even cases of severe illness after consuming the purchased bottles.

Consumers need to be cautious when buying Zam Zam water. You can ask sellers for licenses and other proof of authenticity. It is also important to note that prices have significantly increased this year compared to previous years, which may indicate the presence of counterfeit products in the market.

Stay vigilant and prioritise your health and authenticity when buying Zam Zam water this Ramadan.
