in the heart of Bagolino
Since 1998, thanks to a rapid and constant evolution, from a small local business MANIVA S.p.A. has become a national group. Respect for the mountain that gave the brand life has remained constant, a choice of values with which MANIVA guarantees the respect of the high quality standards of its pure and light water.
The company is also pursuing a progressive expansion of distribution abroad, mainly in Europe and Eastern countries.
The plant is modern and functional and, in a short time, increased the number of bottles produced annually up to the current 160 million.

In 2006 the MANIVA and VERNA waters were recognized by the Ministry of Health as suitable for feeding new-borns.
In the summer of 2009 there was an important turning point with Dosso Alto SpA which became MANIVA SpA. The choice of making the mountain’s name the company's brand name, is part of a constantly evolving industrial path, recognising that we can grow only if we are in harmony with nature.
The main plant of the MANIVA Group in the Caffaro Valley, on the edge of the Adamello Natural Park, is nestled in the splendid scenery of the Brescia side of the Rhaetian Alps. It stands on the slopes of Mount Maniva from which the bottled MANIVA, BALDA and VAIA waters spring, and it guarantees the millenary purity.
Joined the MANIVA Group in 2003, it is located in the province of Arezzo, within the protected natural oasis of the Casentinesi Forests. The VERNA mineral water that is bottled in this plant boasts an ancient history; in fact, already in 1666 Count Ubertini appreciated its therapeutic qualities.
