Fonti Prealpi bottling plant was built in 1966, when the Prealpi water bottling line was installed. In the beginning there was just a glass bottling line, then a PVC line and a PET line were added. Thanks to Prealpi mineral properties and the positive result of scientific researches, the Italian Department of Health had certified that Prealpi low mineral content water is “suitable for newborn babies and for the preparation of baby food” (dL 3518 / 2003). Later the firm launched a range of sugary and low-calorie drinks, to attract the consumer’s attention.

With increasing level of demand for mineral water, the Company had decided to invest in updated hydro-geological technology to dig for a new mineral spring. So Orobica mineral water was discovered. This mineral water, microbiologically pure and light, stimulates digestive process, it is diuretic and recommended for low salt diet.
