About us

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 mineral water at home, giving them control over their drinking water while minimizing plastic wastage. Our international team consists of members from over fifteen countries across five continents, combining engineering, business, marketing, and UX expertise.

Our technology

Our process works in two simple steps. First, it purifies water with a proprietary distillation-based method.

By putting humans first, Mitte aims to change how water is consumed.
