Van2017 is proud to welcome our first PLATINUM Sponsor into the Pacific Mini Games family:

Azure Pure Water

“Since our company’s establishment nearly 20 years ago as the first domestic supplier of bottled water, Azure Pure Water has become the major supplier of packaged water to the archipelago of Vanuatu. During these twenty years, our business has emerged from being a simple, family operation, to become the premier bottled water company in Vanuatu.

A far cry from our humble beginnings, Azure Pure Water now operates from large premises situated close to Bauerfield International Airport.

Azure Pure Water provides stable ongoing employment for many local workers throughout the business to maintain its operations and services. Some of our staff have worked for Azure Pure Water since the business opened! Wanting to promote and build a strong connection with our beautiful island nation, the company was branded ‘Vanuatu Natural’, and we have proudly developed a quality product from available natural resources in Vanuatu,”stated Yael Sakker.

Azure Pure Water manufactures the Vanuatu Natural range of waters in 330ml, 600ml, 1.5L, and 19L bottles. We also produce Distilled Water to be used for mechanical and industrial purposes. The Vanuatu Natural range is distributed throughout the country and is available in many nakamals, restaurants, bars, and resorts.

New owners, Yael Sakker and Shaun Gilchrist, are committed to growing Azure Pure Water, developing new products, promoting local industry, trade, and export, and exploring new markets. They are also committed to promoting good health by supporting sports and health education initiatives, and developing sport in Vanuatu.

Further details of upcoming Azure Pure Water sponsored events, including the much anticipated Van 2017 Pacific Mini Games, can be found at or on the Azure Pure Water Facebook page.
