100 years of unchanged taste and quality

For more than a century, SOUROTI has been refreshing and quenching the thirst of thousands of people every day.

It all started with a spring, from which volumes of water gushed up from the earth, forming a small lake that overflowed and ran through a picturesque ravine in a magnificent landscape, ending up in a small river known as Anthemounda (Anthemus, meaning ‘full of flowers’ in Greek). It is from this very same location that Souroti carbonated natural mineral water continues to spring today.

The richness of the Greek earth adds its own touch to the natural recipe. The flow of the water at great underground depths, and its passage through rocks of unique composition gives Souroti its special mineral composition and its special taste. The result: a natural resource of unique quality and taste, presenting the exact same composition in the analyses of elements from 1916 to the present day.


Each water source has a different composition, which depends on the specific hydrogeological conditions and the hydrogeological model of the aquifer in each region.
The uniqueness of the hydrogeological profile of SOUROTI, the distinctive stratigraphy and composition of the rocks through which the groundwater resource passes, and the long time it takes to move through the rocks, gives us a water of unique composition. The journey starts when the rainwater descends to great depths, passes through the rocks that enrich it with ions and trace elements and, being protected from external surface influences and environmental pollutants, gushes out into the Souroti area.

Throughout this journey, the water is filtered and cleaned naturally. By flowing through the carbonate rocks (limestones, dolomites), it is enriched with valuable minerals such as calcium, magnesium, carbon dioxide (CO2) and bicarbonates (HCO3-).
Through its contact with geothermal fluids at a great depth, it is further enriched with silica (SiO2) and lithium (Li). It springs from the heart of the earth through geological faults at the SOUROTI spring and is bottled directly.

The origin, the circulation pattern up to the water-intake point and the specificity of the chemical composition of the water have been analysed and studied through a series of hydrogeological – geophysical studies, and the protection zones of the natural resource have been defined, within which all anthropogenic activities are strictly controlled.

The source of water abstraction and the underground reserves are controlled and monitored continuously and systematically, in cooperation with specialised scientists and University Institutions, in order to ensure the rational management of the natural resource, stability and sustainability.

Respect for the natural environment – Sustainability

“All of us at SOUROTI S.A. strongly believe that an aquatic natural resource is a valuable social good, renewable and inextricably linked to the environment and to life.”

The rational management of this natural resource, sustainability and respect for the natural environment with a view to the future, are all key commitments of SOUROTI S.A.

For decades and with the continuous cooperation of a team of experts, we have been managing the spring of SOUROTI by applying best practices in the most rational and sustainable way possible, and with respect to the natural environment in order to ensure stability and sustainability.

We are open to cooperation with Primary and Secondary Environmental Education groups, and we support programmes and projects that promote rational management of natural resources, sustainability and respect for the natural environment.

Since 1991, we have been opening the doors of our facilities to pupils and teachers, offering training and information on the following topics: Environment-Natural Resources-Water and promotion of the activities of SOUROTI S.A. on the sustainable management of the natural resource.

From 1991 until today, there have been about 2000 educational visits by schools to the SOUROTI plant, involving the free participation of about 120,000 students and about 8,000 teachers.

Addition of extra CO^2

Souroti has a rather high natural concentration of carbon dioxide at the source of abstraction, in the range of 1200 mg/L, which is one of the criteria required for recognition as a Natural Mineral Water.

In order to enhance its flavour with a greater sense of carbonation, carbon dioxide of natural origin, extracted from the earth from areas with underground layers of carbon dioxide, is added during the bottling process.

About "Nitrates"

Seeing as there are many references to the term “NITRATES” we would like to point out, for the better information of the public, that Souroti belongs to the category of natural mineral waters with Nitrate levels that are undetectable or lower than 0.4 mg/L.
