All natural, bottled at the source and clearly Australian.

In Australia, we’ve got some the world’s purest mineral water in our own backyard. Not to mention some of the freshest produce. That’s why, when Pitzy Folk founded CAPI back in 2011, he saw no need to look overseas or add anything artificial to CAPI’s mixers and mineral waters. Over 10 years later and nothing’s changed. We make clean, completely natural beverages using only the highest quality, real ingredients and locally sourced water.

Now offering a range of more than 20 proudly plastic-free, entirely recyclable drinks, we’re still 100% Australian owned, and every product is crafted right here in Victoria, Australia.

Meet the Folks

CAPI is the product of Pitzy Folk and the Folk Family - a food obsessed, creative-minded bunch with an uncompromising taste for the good life. The humour, hospitality, and design sensibility of the Folk Family inform the CAPI brand. They eat well, drink well and travel far and wide to bring ideas to the business that keep the team pushing between enlightened and eccentric, brilliant and batshit crazy.

With 40+ years of hospitality under his belt, Pitzy has steered the ship of many successful businesses including Map Coffee which sold in 2002 to Tata. The family now invest in a number of tech, cosmetic and fashion brands through Folk Capital.

Above all else, the Folks instil a sense of family into CAPI – the best meetings are over lunches and even better when everyone’s caught the fish together first.


As a business that makes bottled drinks, waste is inevitable. With this in mind, we work hard to limit our impact by choosing plastic free, recyclable packaging, bottling locally to reduce freight and working with like-minded, sustainable suppliers.

We are by no means perfect, but we are always striving to do better. To make business choices that are more sustainable so that we can preserve and maintain the land we live and work on. We work on this every day and will always be transparent about our practices because we understand that there are a lot of claims out there, ‘greenwashing’ and businesses jumping on the sustainability bandwagon because it’s on trend. This is something that’s important to us, and we prioritise it because it’s the right thing to do. The purity and quality of our products is a reflection of the Victorian landscape, and it’s our responsibility to preserve it by maintaining the highest sustainability standards we can.

Locally Produced

Born in Austria, CAPI’s founder Pitzy firmly believes that we have some of the cleanest water sources in the world right here in Australia. To him, it makes no sense to ship containers of Mineral Water in from Europe when we have an abundance of it in our own backyard.

By choosing locally sourced mineral water, CAPI is actively reducing our carbon footprint. Rather than traveling across countries, the water only needs to travel down the road, thanks to the Kyneton bottling plant, located just two hours away from Melbourne. This decision not only promotes sustainability but also supports the local economy.

Like-minded Suppliers

With access to some of the best water, produce and creative talent at our doorstep, it hasn’t been hard to keep CAPI almost entirely Australian-made from the start. We’re constantly striving to increase the locality of, not only our drinks, but our suppliers and producers too. This was a big part of our decision to switch to an Australian-made glass bottle in 2020.

Now working with Orora, a sustainably-minded Australian manufacturing company, we have a product that is just about as local as it gets. With locally sourced water, packaging and production, we now striving to source more ingredients for our mixers locally without altering the quality of the products you love. Stay tuned…

Sustainability Innovation

We’re always on the lookout for ways to grow as a more sustainable business and further reduce our environmental impact.

We have plans in the works to progress this over the next few years so watch this space.
