Prices of iced sachet pure water and iced bottled water have been increased today September 19, 2022.
Iced sachet water and iced bottled water are now selling at 50 pesewas and GH₵3 respectively.
The price increment has been attributed to the “rising cost of inputs such as fuel and packaging materials which are mainly imported and increases in electricity and water from September 1, 2022.”
According to a statement made on September 14, 2022 by the National Executive Committee of the National Association of Sachet and Packaged Water Producers (NASPAWAP), there can be minor differences across regions because of transportation to far-off locations:” The dollar was at GH₵10.02 at our last assessment in August 2022.
It is currently edging closer to GHGH₵11. Since our last review, fuel costs have dramatically increased. It was GH₵9 and is currently GHGH₵14.5, a 61% change since then. According to the Association, March 23, 2022.
The group also stated that the suggested prices should act as a reference to guarantee uniformity in the product’s selling across the nation.
