Römerquelle mineral water will soon be available in Hungary in bottles made of 100% percent recycled plastic.

These so-called rePets are a novelty in Hungary, so this initiative is a significant step in the sustainability strategy of The Coca‑Cola Company, to whose portfolio this brand of mineral water belongs. On this occasion, Pajta Restaurant in the region of Őrség won the Römerquelle - Dining Guide Sustainability Prize.
