Eden Springs has further strengthened its position as Europe’s leading home and office delivery (HOD) water provider with the acquisition of Swiss cooler company, Edelvia. Edelvia is based in Moudon, in the Canton De Vaud in Switzerland, and uniquely specialises in providing both businesses and homes all over Switzerland with high quality mineral water sourced from the Swiss Alps.

CEO of Eden Springs, Raanan Zilberman, comments: “This acquisition marks another important step in our long term strategy and will enable us to improve our understanding of the home market – an area which has great potential for future growth. Eldevia’s experience is valuable to us as we develop our drinks offer into new markets, in terms of both service offering and new end users.The acquisition of Edelvia highlights the success of our water provision in Switzerland and our focus now is to build on this success as we expand our range of products, including our office coffee solutions.”
