Dear Valued Customers
Recently, we incurred some damages to one of our
critical pieces of equipment as a result of power
fluctuations. This resulted in our main filling line
operating below its optimal output.
Additionally, due to the increased demand for our
products during the prolonged dry season, our
normal reserve stock of finished goods was depleted
before we were able to complete the repairs. As a
result, there has been many stock outs of several Blue
Waters package sizes for which we do apologize.
We have taken all the necessary steps to repair our
machines and the schedule below outlines when we
will return to full availability of all of our popular Blue
Waters package sizes:
Saturday July 4th - Blue Waters 1.5 litres
Monday July 6th - Blue Waters 650 ml
Monday July 13th - Cran Plus in a new 500ml size
Tuesday July 23rd - Blue Waters 400ml
Wednesday August 19th - Cran Plus 400ml
First week in September - Cran Plus 650ml
This means you may not see our popular Blue
Waters 400ml package in regular supply at your
favourite stores from now until the week of July 23rd.
We do however encourage you to trade over to our
Blue Waters 5 Litre and or Blue Waters 5 Gallon
package sizes which were not affected.
Blue Waters is committed to serving and delighting all
our loyal customers and we thank you for your
patience and understanding, as we work tirelessly to
provide you with our great tasting and quality products.

was designated as an Environmentally
Sensitive Species (ESS) in 2005 and is
endemic to Trinidad. There are approx-
imately less than 200 birds left in the
wild and this species continues to face
natural and human threats.
