Origin - Source of Life
Our brand slogan, the "Source of Life", has two principal meanings:
Water - the source of all living things.
Ethiopia - the source of human life.
The origin of water is of course ground water aquifers and rain. Rain is on the minds of every Ethiopian. They depend upon it, talk about it, hope for it and even pray for it. Ethiopia depends upon reliable and nourishing rain for its very existence. The link between rain and the source of life is understood by all Ethiopians.
Ethiopia is also the source of life. Our history, and the confirmation through the discovery of the fossilized remains of "Lucy", that Ethiopia was indeed the source of humanity.
Our brand combines the celebration of water and the face of Ethiopia. A celebration of the source of life and a celebration of Origin natural mineral water - pure, revitalizing and refreshing.
