In 1928, Eloy Alberto Sánchez Cañas acquired the land where the mineral water sources are located, in the sector of San Felipe, in Latacunga, Cotopaxi province.
With great vision. our founder initiates the bottling of this prodigious water in green and brown bottles, with paper labels, the same ones that were packed in jute bags and distributed through wheelbarrows to the Latacungueñas families. He traveled to United States by train from Guayaquil and by boats of the Grace Line. The first machinery that was used was manual and from Germany.
Through the years, the design and shape of the containers changed according to the trends of the time, as well as the machinery, which little by little was automated.
