Sachet water to sell at ¢0.40, a bag goes for ¢8 effective today

    The National Executive Committee (NEC) of the National Association of Sachet and Packaged Water Producers (Naspawap) in consultation with stakeholders has reviewed the prices of bottled and sachet water across the country.

    Sachet water price is  expected to increase from today, April 1.

    According to the association, “the price reviews have been necessitated by the rising cost of inputs, such as fuel and packaging materials, which are mainly imported and produced from petroleum sources.”

    Barring any hitch, a sachet water will be selling at ¢0.40, while the 500ml bottled water will be retailed at ¢2. From Friday, iced bottled water of 750ml or medium size will be sold at ¢2.50.

    A bag of sachet water, 500ml by 30pcs, will be sold at ¢6 maximum from the retail trucks. Mini shops will now retail a bag of sachet at GHS8.00per bag maximum and  the 1.5L or large bottled water will be sold at ¢3.50.

    The NEC also pleaded with the “government and its agencies to take a second look at many fees and taxes on the packaged water industry to help reduce the financial burden to save the industry and protect jobs for the youths along the value chain from production to consumption of the packaged water.”
