Good hydration promotes the development of good ideas and supports a healthy lifestyle”.

Vitale “looks to promote the creative spirit that characterizes Uruguayans”, Ms Imbriaco added. Brand ambassadors include the footballer Edison Cavani and the athlete Debora Rodríguez, celebrities who, according to Ms Imbriaco, not only represent the brand value but are also seen as symbols of Uruguay globally.
