Sachet water will cost 40 pesewas from Monday
The National Association of Sachet and Packaged Water Producers has announced an increment in the prices of sachet water from 20 pesewas to 40 pesewas.
The upward price review will take effect from Monday, January 27, 2021.
The price of sachet water has remained at 20 pesewas for more than six years.
Additionally, the price of bottled water will also increase. Per the association’s announcement, a 500ml bottled water will go up to GHS1.50 from the current GHS1.00.
According to the association, the price increment was informed by the increasing cost of production including the cost of fuel, vehicle spare parts and imported packaging materials.
“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.”
