The “Amico del Consumatore” Award (“Friend of the Consumer”) set up by CODACONS is now in its 18th edition. The award aims to give special recognition to people and companies that have stood out this year in the fight against the pandemic, providing effective support and protecting consumer rights.

Uliveto and Rocchetta, which have always been committed to social responsibility and consumer care, are the only mineral waters to be given an “Amico del Consumatore 2020-21” Award, in recognition of the financial support provided to four Italian hospitals. Specifically, a total of €600,000 was donated, distributed between: San Luca Hospital in Lucca, Tor Vergata Hospital in Rome, San Paolo Hospital in Milan, and for the purchase of medical devices for the Regional Civil Protection Centre in Umbria, which distributed them to the most affected health facilities in the region.

    As further acknowledgement of Uliveto and Rocchetta's commitment in this regard, CODACONS recognised the strong social message in their “Vivi l’Italia” spot broadcast in the summer of 2020 on TV and online, as a positive message of hope for a recovery that will encourage people to travel in Italy once again.

The commitment of Uliveto and Rocchetta (“waters of health”) in the fight against coronavirus doesn’t stop here, and to support health workers and speed up the COVID-19 vaccination programme, Rocchetta is hosting and covering the costs of a vaccine centre at its facility in Gualdo Tadino (Perugia), available to the whole community of the Umbria region.
