Sachet water price has increased again effective Monday, October 31, 2022, the National Association of Sachet and Packaged Water Producers (Naspawap) has announced. This comes after an emergency stakeholder engagement on 26th October 2022, to review the effect of the ever-rising production cost.
“The National Executive Committee of the National Association of Sachet and Packaged Water Producers (NASPAWAP) therefore recommends the following price reviews of bottled and sachet water. These reviews serve as a guide to all Regional associations to ensure uniformity across the country. The NEC also cautions that there might be slight variations across regions and towns due to haulage to remote and distant areas and other overheads.
“It is recommended that iced bottled water, 500m1 be retailed at GH₵2.50 and iced bottles water 750m1 or medium size be retailed at GH₵3.50, iced bottled water 1.5L be retailed at GH₵5.00 It is also recommended that the iced sachet water should be retailed at 60 pesewas.
A bag of sachet water (500m1 x 30 sachets) will now sell at GH₵10.00 from the retail trucks as ex truck price. It is worth noting that the retail price of a bag of sachet water and packs of bottled water from mini shops will be determined by their retail associations, using other determinants such as rent and overheads that feeds into the final retail price. However, in the open market, consumers may expect to purchase a bag of sachet water between GH₵12.00 and GH₵15.00 depending on the shop location.
