Who we are

Ambo Mineral Water has been bottled and marketed since 1930 and is considered the market leader in Ethiopia.

The source of Ambo Mineral Water is a thermo-mineral spring, rich in natural calcium, magnesium, potassium, bicarbonates and carbon dioxide. The water originates in a volcanic fissure which then peculates through mountainous terrain eventually being tapped at the springs in Ambo Senkele, 130 km from Addis Ababa, capital city of Ethiopia.


These springs are located on the cross roads of an ancient, major trade route, and have been revitalizing travelers, traders, nomads, soldiers and settlers from the beginning of humankind.

Ambo comes from the Ethiopian highlands, a unique part of the world. It is recognized as the leading beverage of Ethiopia, a true ‘Ethiopian Icon’. It is popularly consumed during and after meals as a digestive, also popularly consumed as a thirst quenching ‘soft-drink’ or as a discerning mixer, specifically with whiskey.

The growing demand for Ambo both locally and abroad has resulted in new investments in capacity and packaging variations. Our product and pack range has been extended to include convenience packaging in plastic bottles, as well as new products, ‘Ambo lite’ (lower carbonation and mineralization) and ‘Ambo flavored water’ (Orange, Apple, Pineapple, Lemon-lime).etc.
