Eau Kulen meets rigorous quality standards, from its fair balance of minerals to the implementation of particularly demanding production and bottling standards, recognized at the international level. Eau Kulen thus meets strict internal specifications and also the historical commitment of Kulara Water aiming to offer a natural and healthy product, affordable and suitable for daily consumption, without excess in minerals such as fluorine or sodium.
A principal pillar of the success of Eau Kulen is the quality approach of Kulara Water, which includes many commitments among which are the strict control of the production, the preservation of the purity of the source and its environment, the involvement of all employees, ensuring customer satisfaction and, more broadly, the development of bonds of trust with all of its stakeholders. In terms of the environment, Kulara Water strictly complies with the instructions of the Ministry of the Environment ensuring the preservation of local ecosystems, especially around the well. The company has also implemented a partnership with the Archaeology and Development Foundation (ADF) to protect the quality of its natural mineral water and consolidate its reforestation objectives.
Kulara Water’s teams are particularly committed to a quality approach combining rigorous in-house self-monitoring and a set of analyses conducted by external independent laboratories. In all stages of production, from collection at source to bottling, continuous rigorous monitoring of procedures ensures strict compliance with quality standards. The bottling plant is GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice) and HACCP (Hazard Analysis Critical Control Point) certified and meets the highest international standards.
Kulara Water’s integrated laboratory, which includes several microbiologists, takes a minimum of 6 samples per day to look for any form of bacteriological contamination and to ensure the strict control of the production. Two other independent laboratories, « Science, Technology and Innovation National Laboratory» in Cambodia and ALS Technichem in Singapore, also guarantee the excellent quality of Eau Kulen.
Kulara Water's reforestation program, in partnership with the ADF Foundation, combines resource and biodiversity protection, environmental awareness among younger generations, reintroduction of endangered species and also regeneration of natural balances. To date (latest data from July 2020), 43,000 trees have been reintroduced, including nearly 8,000 on the 40.5 ha of Kulara Water and over 35,000 in the Phnom Kulen National Park (3 additional protected areas and 800 ha of land).
The program, which is based on preventive management of the natural mineral water source and its environment, reinforces the guarantee of quality at the heart of Eau Kulen's reputation. It also helps to maintain many natural ecological balances, particularly in terms of carbon capture, rain precipitation, food security, biodiversity conservation, fertilization and soil enrichment. The young trees reintroduced have also their role to play in terms of forest cover, ecological corridor, prevention and retention of any external contamination but also in the prevention of soil erosion.
