We bottle our natural mineral water at sources that are as close to our customer base as possible, instead of using one central (fixed) source for all markets. This way we can minimize transportation distances and limit our impact on the environment.
For the Benelux Marie-Stella-Maris natural mineral water in
- The Sifrès source in Hoensbroek, the Netherlands (PET)
- The St. Nikolaus Quelle in Malborn, Rheinland-Pfalz, Germany (glass).
Marie-Stella-Maris natural mineral water is only available in the Netherlands at a number of small scale retailers,
And at a large number of local wholesalers:

Our plastic bottles are made of lightweight PET that contains 50% re-cycled PET (rPET). They are 100% recyclable and BPA-free. Our glass variants are available in one-way bottles, which should be returned to glass containers.
Marie-Stella-Maris has had a LCA (Life Cycle Analysis) drawn up to calculate its impact on the environment. The LCA helps us to understand how improvements in packaging and transport decrease the impact on the environment. As a result, we have made our PET bottles as light as possible without losing the convenience or safety of packaging.
