Hontanar Water Analysis:
|Country of Origin:||Colombia|
|Company:||Aquandina AME SAS|
Bottled directly at its source, Hontanar Mineral Water is captured at an altitude of 2,100 meters, in the cloud forest of Pennsylvania, municipality of the department of Caldas in Colombia. This ecosystem is located in the foothills of the central mountain range of the Andes, a pristine territory of volcanic origin. The water filters naturally through the rocks, and they contribute minerals to the water emerging at the source.
The cloud forest where Hontanar is born has an area of 10,019 hectares, with an ecosystem of rain-forest. This ecosystem with difficult topographical conditions has meant that man's hand has not acted permanently, which has allowed its wealth to be preserved intact. This forest represents one of the last natural riches of the Andean region, its scenic beauty of canyons, mountains, rolling hills, dense and tangled vegetation; It is protected and conserved by Hontanar for the next generations, as part of its social responsibility objectives.
Aquandina AME SAS, the company that bottles Hontanar mineral water, was created at the beginning of 2014 in Pennsylvania Caldas, by three entrepreneurs. Motivated by the desire to contribute to the economic and social development of the region and the country as a whole. The project materialized thanks to the tenacity and the passion that was put in the project.
