Mitte is on a mission to provide healthy hydration for Every Body. Having created the world’s first smart water system inspired by the natural water cycle, we are driven to reinvent the way water is consumed globally. Our solution allows users to create personalized mineralized water at home, giving them control over their drinking water while minimizing plastic wastage. Our offer will be extended into an ecosystem covering all user touchpoints. Our process works in two simple steps. First, it purifies water with a proprietary distillation-based method. After the purification, the water is enhanced through a unique, patent-pending mineralization process, where purified water flows through a cartridge that contains several layers of mineral ingredients. Mitte was initiated at the beginning of 2016. Our international team consists of members from over fifteen countries across six continents and is backed by experienced global investors, who share our sustainable vision. We are an entrepreneurial group, excited about using engineering and design to bring innovative and sustainable products to the market.
