About


History

Many years ago, in cafes, restaurants and shops in Bulgaria, people used to order “soda” having Mihalkovo naturally carbonated water in mind. These are facts.

When it all started?
Naturally carbonated mineral water Mihalkovo springs from the heart of the Rhodope Mountains, 2 km east of the village of Mihalkovo and has almost 80 years long tradition. The spring is located in the Possestra locality in the Valley of Vacha River and was found in 1936, as a mountain water stream, with distinctive taste and flavor. In the late 1930s local people decided to turn the water into their main business. In 1939, Devin Municipal Land Ownership and Consolidation Committee decided to expropriate the land within a radius of 500 meters around the naturally carbonated water Mihalkovo water source. In 1942, start was given to construction of a well and conducted water analysis.

Now we are producers
Mihalkovo Company is one of the oldest producers of bottled mineral water in Bulgaria.
Extraction and bottling of Mihalkovo mineral water in the Village of Mihalkovo, Smolyan Municipality, began back in 1956 when the first bottle of water Mihalkovo was manually filled in a wooden shack, and later on it was exhibited at the Plovdiv Fair. Subsequently, simple ball valves and German washing machine were used for bottling purposes.
The new plant was opened in 1970.
In 1990 the company was registered as a Producer Cooperative (TPK), and twenty years later Mihalkovo SA was established – a joint stock company with 100% private capital.
TPK Mihalkovo focuses its operations exclusively on the extraction and bottling of natural carbonated and spring water, and Mihalkovo SA takes business operations.

The people of Mihalkovo
Mihalkovo provides job placement for about 80 people, some of them members of the Cooperative. Bottling of mineral water provides employment for nearly the entire region – the company employs people from Mihalkovo and the surrounding villages such as Selcha and Lyaskovo.
