As on September 19, bottled water will cost 3 cedi's while sachet water will be available for 0.50p


The costs of sachet and bottled water will increase once more starting on Monday, September 19, according to the National Association of Sachet and Packaged Water Producers (NASPAWAP).

The Association states that a 500ml by 30 piece bag of sachet water may only be sold for a maximum of 7 from retail trucks. However, the commodity will only be sold at mini-stores for a maximum of $9 per bag.

Iced sachet water will be sold for 0.50p, while 500ml bottles of water would cost two cents. A 750ml or medium-sized iced bottle of water will cost $3.00.

In a statement released on Wednesday, NASPAWAP blamed the price changes on rising fuel costs and the depreciation of the cedi.

"Rising costs for inputs like fuel and packaging materials, which are primarily imported, as well as hikes in power and water that went into effect on September 1, 2022, have forced pricing reviews."In March 2022, when we last reviewed the situation, the dollar was somewhere about $8. It is currently edging closer to $10. Since our last review, fuel prices have dramatically increased. It was 9, and as of now, it is 14.5—a 61% increase since March 23, 2022.

However, some of the statement's language included a warning that there might be minor pricing differences across regions as a result of hauling goods to far-off locations.

The Association further urged everyone to work with the dealers because the modification would lower the manufacturers' production costs.

The suggested modification is intended to assist producers in meeting their production expenses. We recognize the struggles that our customers face in dealing with these struggles. We ask everyone to be patient with us"
