Promineral SA is a Portuguese company owned by Renova SA. Its origins trace back to 1890. It has recently been acquired by Renova SA, the owner company of the RENOVA brand for consumer paper products, with presence in over 60 countries.
Promineral SA main activity is the extraction, bottling and marketing of mineral still and sparkling waters of the dormant Furnas volcano in S. Miguel Island, in the Azores archipelago. It has a management and marketing support center located in mainland Portugal.
The bottling of mineral sparkling water in ‘Serra do Trigo’ (Furnas, S. Miguel Island, Azores) started at the end of the 19th century. The business was founded and early developed by the Machado family. The natural characteristics of these waters have earned it national and international prizes. Between 1895 and 1932, in Europe and the Americas, it earned five gold medals, one silver medal and two ‘grand prix’ medals. The current brands it owns and markets are ‘Magnificat’ (volcanic mineral sparkling water) and ‘Gloria Patri’ (volcanic spring still water).
