The objective set by the company is to continue to be above the sector average increasing production efficiency, as well as offering an excellent service to all its customers. Aquadeus water recently won gold in the International Gourmet Waters Competition organised by the Agricultural Goods Evaluation Agency, AVPA, in Paris. This is the maximum distinction in a competition which has counted on the participation of 75 brands of water from 19 different countries. Aquadeus has participated in the waters of medium mineralisation category and the quality of its product has allowed it to exceed other high quality brands such as the Portuguese Healsi, which won Silver, and the French Chantemerle, which got the bronze. This prize can be added to the fact that the natural mineral water Aquadeus has been chosen as one of the best bottled waters on the market five years consecutively, according to the Users and Consumers Association (OCU), for its chemical composition and its excellent value for money. This water is classified as containing bicarbonate, calcium and low in sodium, recommended for the preparation of children’s food and for low sodium diets.
