Knjaz Milos company and the brand Aqua Viva will certainly continue to change the habits of our children and help the family to grow on healthy basis”, said Milos Stojisavljevic, the CEO of Knjaz Milos company.

“We are grateful for having Knjaz Milos company as a good corporate partner, which, together with the Ministry of Education, Science and Technological development, invests in younger generations and builds a healthy society and better future. I am proud of our collaboration and the positive changes in children’s everyday physical activities in Serbian elementary schools”, said the Minister of education, science and technological development Mladen Sarcevic.
