A rising consumer trend in prioritizing healthy products from nature
Nowadays, the hustle and bustle life makes the body easy to lose balance due to pressure, stress and pollution. The habit of consuming a lot of acidic foods such as red meat, processed foods, alcohol, etc. can cause the human body to accumulate an excess acid amount, if people maintain this habit for a long time that could lead to health problems.
Following the pandemic, consumers tend to be more concerned about their health and become more cautious when selecting for food and drinks. No longer a trend, consumers are now prioritizing, and even more demanding, when it comes to select the natural products with out process and additive. One of the most in demand is natural alkaline mineral water.
Alkaline mineral water when absorbed by the body will help neutralize excess acid in the stomach, bring the body back to a natural healthy balance. Globally, natural alkaline mineral water is also used in a variety of ways which range from specialized medical care treatments to nourishing skin care products such as toners, face wash, facial sprays, etc.
It is called alkaline mineral water, or alkaline water, because of the content of natural alkaline minerals in the composition of the water. A pH scale, ranging from 0 to 14, is used to measure alkalinity of water; average is 7.0, with the higher the alkalinity and the lower the acidity. Natural alkaline mineral water has an average of pH 7.5 to 8.5, while a healthy human body’s pH level is between 7.3 and 7.4.

Great potential & long-term development plans
In Vietnam, the general market for bottled water, specifically mineral water, is growing at a rapid pace rate with the participation of many domestic and foreign brands. Many mineral water products from Japan, France…are world famous and being sold at very high prices, but consumers are still looking to buy because of its long-term health benefits. This contributes to increased competition in terms of product quality, brands, and prices which create more choices for consumers.
Anticipating this, Khanh Hoa Mineral Water Joint Stock Company invested in a complete system of modern production lines from Germany and Italy with a capacity of 180 million liters per year. Currently Vikoda Natural Alkaline Mineral Water is consumed at in restaurants, high-end hotels, large supermarket chains (Big C, Lotte, Saigon Co.op, Bach Hoa Xanh, Emart etc.), convenience stores (Circle K, GS25, Family Mart etc.), water agents, grocery stores across the country and oriented to develop export markets such as Asian and European countries in the near future.
Comments on the market potential and future direction of the company, Mr. Nguyen Van Sang, Chairman of F.I.T Group said: “Danh Thanh natural mineral water permeated many geological layers and accumulated over hundreds of years to form a mineral stream deep underground, but its reserves are limited. Currently, the factory only extracts about 500m³ per day, produces more than 1.5 million bottles of water, this quantity seem to be too small compared to the market of 100 million people. F.I.T Group and Vikoda are researching to release into the market diverse product lines that serve the needs of key customer groups thereby building a long-term community that actively looks for potential opportunities, such as serving customers at 5-6 star hotels and resorts in Vietnam and around the world.”
Over 30 years of establishment and development, Vikoda has a long history and a brand name that owns many competitive advantages from its own resources of Danh Thanh mineral source. Being given the priority on investment from the “parent” company, F.I.T Group, now Khanh Hoa Mineral Water Joint Stock Company, is on track to become the top 5 domestic drinking water enterprises in Vietnam, realizing the goal of elevating Vietnamese brands to protect the health and increase benefits for consumers.
