The first of the springs in the area was tapped in 1922, and the first bottles appeared on the market in 1938. Today, Volvic waters are internationally known and over 50% of the production of Volvic water is exported to more than sixty countries throughout the world. Two bottling plants produce over one billion bottles of water annually and are the principal employers of the local Volvic commune. In October 1993, the Volvic Company was bought by Groupe Danone. Since 1997, Volvic has been using PETE, a recyclable material, to make their bottles.
Their unique mineral content comes from 6 layers of natural volcanic filtration giving it a crisp fresh taste.
