Since its birth in 1998, MANIVA SpA has enjoyed a rapid evolution from a small local business to a Group of national importance. The respect towards the mountain that gave life to the brand has remained constant, a value choice MANIVA thinks makes it responsible in relation to the high quality standards for its own water, all coming from mountain springs: clean and light, especially recommended for feeding newborns. In relation to the connotation, the Group’s mineral waters, in terms of the market’s competitive offering, represent quality and taste: all the mountain origin oligominerals, streaming in protected areas, environmentally protected and not polluted – the natural oasis of the Casentino forests; clean and light, they are recognized waters for the feedings of infants.
The fundamental stage will be the purchase of the SORGENTE VERNA Srl factory in Chiusi della Verna, in the natural oasis of the Casentino forests in the province of Arezzo. The factory, open since 1975, has been completely modernized and the water, famous for its therapeutic properties already mentioned in a document in 1666, is bottled and sold with the VERNA label. With this new production site, the Group can successfully appear in the sector of effervescent drinks based on mineral water: the AQUIDEA DI VERNA brand, which later became MANIVA DRINKS, with an offering of 9 bottled drinks with the classic flavors and was quickly welcomed by the local consumers.
