We will transfer our know-how in innovation, quality, experience in a highly competitive environment, customer orientation and product portfolio focusing on the healthy lifestyle of adults and children, to the Hungarian market. At the same time we will support local traditions and products,” says Alessandro Pasquale, chief executive of KMV.

According to the agreement with Nestlé Waters, KMV will continue bottling and the development of the existing portfolio of Nestlé Waters brands, such as Nestlé Aquarel, San Pellegrino, Perrier and Acqua Panna.

KMV began its European expansion in 2008, when it purchased Austrian company Waldquelle, which has become the second largest beverage company on the local market under the lead of the KMV. KMV currently operates in the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Austria, Germany, Poland and Ukraine..

According to data of the European Federation of Bottled Waters, Hungary is among the most developed markets in Europe in terms of the consumption of bottled water. In 2013, local consumption was 119 liters per capita.
