Sachet water price has increased effective Monday, September 19, 2022, a Press release by the National Association of Sachet and Packaged Water Producers (Naspawap) said.
The adjustment, according to the association is to help producers cover their production costs, on the back of the increasing cost of raw materials, fuel, and the cedi’s depreciation.
Following this, iced sachet water is to be sold at 50 pesewas, ice bottled water 500ml to be retailed at 2ghc, and iced bottled water, 750ml or medium size, also to be retailed at 3ghc.
Also a bag of sachet water, 500ml by 30, will now sell at 7ghc from the retail trucks. Mini shops will now retail a bag of sachet at 9ghc per bag.
“We appreciate the difficulties our consumers have to go through to endure these hardships. We appeal to all to bear with us.” the statement read.
