Sachet & packaged water producers review prices effective Friday, April 1

The National Executive Committee (NEC) of the National Association of Sachet and Packaged Water Producers (Naspawap) has announced an upward review of prices of sachet and packaged water effective Friday, April 1.




“These reviews serve as a guide to all Regional Associations and to ensure uniformity across the country,” it said in a statement.

It, however, cautioned that the prices might differ slightly “due to haulage to remote and distant areas”.

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

It, therefore, pleaded with government 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”.

Per the review, iced bottled water of 500ml will be retailed at GH¢2 and iced bottled water of 750ml or medium size will be retailed at GH¢2.50 and the 1.5L bottled water at GH¢3.50.

Iced sachet water, popularly known as Pure Water, remains unchanged at GHp40.

A bag of sachet water, 500ml by 30pcs, will now sell at GH¢6 maximum from the retail trucks. Mini shops will now retail a bag of sachet at GH¢8 per bag maximum.
