About Aguas Danone Argentina

Aguas Danone Argentina (ADA)’s mission is to improve healthier hydration habits through water-based proposals in an innovative and sustainable way through purpose-driven brands. ADA put its mission in practice by inspiring people towards healthier hydration through its fruit beverages which combine mineral natural water with fruit juice, providing hydration in a healthy and tasty way; and through its pure water beverages, incorporating the healthiest alimentation habit.

ADA believes that the only way to operate is by putting its mission in action, taking care of the environment and the communities. For this reason, its brands aim to create value through community-relevant purposes, tackling relevant problems such as climate change, access to safe water, ecosystem protection, regeneration and packaging waste.

Its plants are located in Mendoza province, where water naturally springs in the protected Natural Reserve Villavicencio, and in Chascomús at Buenos Aires province. The Natural Reserve Villavicencio also protects 72,000 hectares of historical, cultural, archaeological and biological heritage. This natural reserve is a Natural Protected Area declared by the government of Mendoza province, a wildlife refuge (a program of Fundación Vida Silvestre Argentina -WWF associate-), a AICAS site (program of Birdlife International), and it was declared as “Cultural Patrimony”. In addition, Natural Reserve Villavicencio’s education program is recognized as provincial interest by the government.
