Prices of Sachet Water To Go Up on Monday

The National Executive Committee (NEC) of the National Association of Sachet and Packaged Water Producers (NASPAWAP) has disclosed that prices of sachet water and bottled water will rise by Monday 27th December 2021.

According to the association the rise in price is as a result of increasing cost of packaging, fuel prices and cost of spare parts.

“It is recommended that the 500ml bottled water be retailed at GHC1.50, and the 750ml or medium size bottled water be retailed at GHC2.00. The 1.5L or large bottled water is to be retailed at GHS3.50. Iced sachet water will be retailed at 40peswas. A bag of sachet water, 500ml by 30pcs, will now sell at GHC4.50 from the retail trucks. Mini shops will now retail a bag of sachet at GHC6 per bag minimum.

“Regrettably, fuel price reviews attract a lot of public outcry anytime the government imposes the slightest tax on it. However, the public turns a blind eye to taxes on bottled water, which account for the high prices consumers have to bear,” the Association’s National President, Magnus Nunoo disclosed.

The association’s president also mentioned that imported materials for the production of local sachet water is huge hence causing the increase.
