The price of sachet water will be increased to GHC0. 30 pesewas from GHC0. 30 pesewas effective Monday, March 15, 2021.
The National Association of Sachet and Packaged Water Producers (NASPAWAP) announced the new price change in a press statement.
In the statement available to Original News, the association explained the decision is due to an increase in the cost of fuel and production since the last price increase in 2018.
The price of sachet water also known as pure water is therefore now expected to be sold at GHC0.30 pesewas.
Price of a sachet of water used to cost GHC0.20 pesewas before the increase.
Meanwhile, the minimum price of a bag of sachet water has seen a 25 per cent increment.
The minimum price of a bag of pure water is therefore now purchased by all the trucks and depots at GHC 2.50 pesewas.
