History of Font d'Or Waters:

Font d'Or water originates in the heart of the Montseny massif, 1000 meters above sea level. In the Pla de les Arenes area there was a large farm called Cortals de Tarrés, made up of part of farmland and most of forest. This property extended across lands of two municipalities, most of it in Arbúcies and the other in Sant Hilari Sacalm. In the latter there was a fountain popularly called Font d'Or. The water flowed directly from the rock with a waterfall that never dried up.

It was in the mid-fifties when Mr. Florenci Serras Thos considered the possibility of exploiting and marketing those waters. For him it was not a new activity, since he had experience in the world of water, but he had the opportunity to develop family waters that were owned by his uncle Joan Serras Pascual.

At the end of 1956, Mr. Florenci Serras, with the authorization of his uncle, began the procedures and works to be able to exploit those waters. Specifically, on January 1, 1957, when he already had all the permits, his marketing activity began in a small ground-floor bottling plant where only glass jugs were filled.

The decade of the seventies meant a change, since in March 1971 Font d'Or, SA was established. This event led to the appearance of more partners, more capital and a new, more modern bottling plant which, at the same time, gave rise to to the appearance of new packaging. Already in the eighties, new members joined the society, which would lead it to a period of expansion and great recognition; Font d'Or, SA, became part of Vichy Catalan Corporation.

These changes began in 1986 and quickly achieved great recognition for Font d'Or water and a good position in the commercial market. But the great event that consolidated Font d'Or occurred in 1992, when it was chosen among many other waters to accompany everyone and at all times during the celebration of the XXV Olympic Games in Barcelona.
