AQUA Carpatica Achieves National Distribution with Launch in Kroger

NEW YORK, May 31, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — AQUA Carpatica, the world’s only nitrate-free naturally sparkling mineral water, announces today the brand has earned national distribution for its naturally sparkling mineral and still spring varieties at Kroger stores. The brand’s authorization at Kroger will dramatically increase availability for its naturally alkaline, nitrate-free waters throughout the U.S.

Generated from a unique land deep within the Carpathian Mountains – one of the remaining untamed forests of Eastern Europe – AQUA Carpatica offers naturally untouched mineral and spring waters of the highest quality. Purified by nature, AQUA Carpatica is sourced from two distinctive springs located over 200 meters underground. In these ancient springs, there are no processing plants, no human interference – only the purest water, as natural today as it was at the beginning of time.


With no agriculture or industrial activity in the surrounding areas, AQUA Carpatica’s source is protected from chemicals, fertilizers, CFCs and other contaminants. The hydro-geological structure of these mountains protects the purity of the water, and enriches the AQUA Carpatica springs with natural minerals and electrolytes beneficial to whole body health.

“Having launched just four years ago in our home country of Romania, we are so proud to have earned national distribution throughout the U.S. in partnership with Kroger,” said Jean Valvis, President and General Director of Valvis Holding, AQUA Carpatica’s parent company. “AQUA Carpatica is now available in eight countries, and we look forward to continued growth and expanded availability for our nitrate-free, naturally sparkling mineral and still spring waters both in the U .S. and around the world.”

Health BenefitsNitrate-free and naturally sparkling, AQUA Carpatica Natural Sparkling Mineral Water has a range of health benefits. Due to its unique concentration of calcium and magnesium, it is particularly suited for athletes and people with high levels of physical activity, and its naturally sparkling attributes also help aid in digestion. Both the sparkling and still varieties are also naturally free of sodium, which makes AQUA Carpatica the perfect choice for people on a low sodium diet, or for those suffering from high blood pressure. AQUA Carpatica is:

  • Nitrate Free
  • Sodium Free
  • Contains Natural Electrolytes
  • Naturally Alkaline (High pH of 8.2 for AQUA Carpatica still spring water)
  • Purified by 40 Years of Natural Underground Journey

Nitrate AwarenessAQUA Carpatica is dedicated to educating consumers regarding the dangers of nitrates in drinking water, as exemplified by the brand’s international campaigns enacted to inform the public about the content of their drinking water.

In the U.S., there is currently no regulation regarding nitrates and infants that differs from the 10 mg/l NO3-N Maximum Contaminant Level limit for adults (50 mg/l N according to the EU measurements), whereas countries like Austria, France,Germany, and Italy have enacted protective legislation requiring nitrate content lower than 2.27 mg/l NO3-N (10 mg/l N according to the EU measurements) in order to claim the product is healthy for infants. Due to its pure, nitrate-free content, AQUA Carpatica is an ideal choice for pregnant women, young children and for use with infant formulas.

AvailabilityAQUA Carpatica will be available at more than 900 Kroger, Ralph’s, Fry’s, King Scoopers, Fred Meyer, and QFC & Smith’s stores across the U.S. starting May 2016. This distribution announcement follows the company’s recent news of distribution expansions at Sprouts Farmer’s Market Stores, Gelson’s Markets and Whole Foods locations in Northern CA. The brand also has an international presence in Romania, Great Britain, Japan, China, UAE, Germany and Australia, and can be purchased online
