There has been an increment in the prices of sachet and bottled water.
According to the National Association of Sachet and Packaged Water Producers, the increment on “pure water” will be from 20ps. to 40ps. and the 500ml bottled water will be from GHS. 1.00 to 1.50 GHS..
Addressing the public, President of the National Association of Sachet and Packaged Water Producers, Magnus Nunoo disclosed that, due to the increase in cost of production ; id est fuel, vehicle spare parts etc, the need to increase the production sales.
He said the increment will take effect from December 27th, 2021 today.
“We are looking at the 0.5 litre bottle, that one will go to 1.5, and the medium size which is 750ml will now sell for GHS 2, and the sachet will go to 40 pesewas per iced sachet.”
“A bag of sachet water, 500ml by 30pcs, will now sell at GHC 4.50 from the retail trucks. Mini shops will now retail a bag of sachet at GHC 6 per bag minimum. These reviews take effect from Monday December 27, 2021. The price reviews have been necessitated by rising cost of inputs such as fuel, vehicle spare parts and packaging materials which are mainly imported. At our previous review, the Ghana Cedi to the dollar was in the region of GHC 4.50. Currently it is inching up to GHC 6.50. Fuel prices have also significantly gone up since our last review.”
