A North American and European water, coffee and coffee extracts, tea and filtration solutions service company.

The company's subsidiary, Eden Springs, extracts water from a spring in the occupied Syrian Golan. The company was extracting water from the Salukia spring in the Golan, but due to a threat of contamination, the company received an authorization from the Ministry of Health to operate drillings in one of Mekorot’s drilling sites in the Golan, before being awarded a constant drilling site. The maximum production of the drilling should not exceed 12 MCUM. The main plant is located in the industrial zone of Katzrin settlement, which is also in the Syrian Golan.

By extracting water from the Golan for decades, the company is exploiting Syrian resources and strengthening Israel’s control over the occupied Syrian Golan.
