AQUA Carpatica Enters New York via Distribution Agreement with Gourmet Guru

NEW YORK, May 10, 2016 /PRNewswire/ — AQUA Carpatica, the world’s only nitrate-free, naturally sparkling mineral water, is pleased to announce the continued retail expansion for its naturally sparkling mineral and still spring varieties via a new distribution agreement with Gourmet Guru. This partnership will bring AQUA Carpatica’s pristine waters to the New York Market, the brand’s first introduction in the Northeast.

AQUA Carpatica offers naturally untouched mineral and spring waters of the highest quality, generated from a unique land deep within the Carpathian Mountains, one of the remaining untamed forests of Eastern Europe. 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 fertilizers, chemicals, 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.

“As a brand committed to offering the purest waters on Earth, we are proud to be the first to bring nitrate-free, naturally sparkling mineral water to the U.S. consumer,” said Jean Valvis, President and General Director of Valvis Holding, the parent company of AQUA Carpatica. “Gourmet Guru is an ideal partner for us as we expand to the East Coast and aim to reach health-conscious consumers who place increased emphasis on the content of their food and beverage choices.”

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 springs are:

  • Nitrate Free
  • Sodium Free
  • Naturally Enriched with Natural Electrolytes (Calcium and Magnesium)
  • Naturally Alkaline (High pH of 8.2 for AQUA Carpatica still spring water)
  • Purified by decades-long journey through volcanic rocks

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 whereas countries like Austria, France, Germany, and Italy have enacted protective legislation requiring nitrate content lower than 2.27 mg/l NO3-N 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 is now available in New York, with national availability soon to follow. For more information,
