The National Association of Sachet and Packaged Water Producers has announced an increase in sachet water prices effective Monday, September 19, 2022.

According to the Association, the adjustment is to enable producers to cover their production costs, following an increase in the cost of raw materials, fuel, and the cedi’s depreciation.

Consequently, 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.

Furthermore, 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.” a press statement by the Association said.

Parts of the statement, however, cautioned that there might be slight variations in prices across the regions due to haulage to remote and distant areas.

The Association further appealed to all and sundry to cooperate with the dealers since the adjustment is to reduce the production cost of manufacturers.
