Customers have responded very positively to Yaru Water’s products, which tap into a growing demand for bottled water, but with a unique history and mission. We are delighted to be selling such an excellent product.

Yaru Water’s support of the 2016 junior indigenous carnival has allowed us to continue to use football as a vehicle to promote a healthy lifestyle in indigenous communities.

We wanted something special. When we found Yaru Water and heard the story, we wanted to give that to our guests. It's such a great product. It should be in every boardroom in Australia.

As soon as we saw Yaru Water we were impressed. The quality of the product is outstanding and we’re incredibly happy to showcase Yaru Water and its story; not just to Australians but also to international travellers, wherever they come from.
Simon, Chief Procurement Officer
I’ve no doubt the focus on social outcomes, along with the quality and commerciality of the product, will contribute to the ongoing significant take up of Yaru Water by corporations across Australia.
