2 Min Read

The national executive committee of the National Association of Sachet and Packaged water Producers (NASPAWAP) in consultation with stakeholders are recommending that Iced sachet water is recommended at 50 PESEWAS.

It is recommended that ice bottled water 500ml be retailed at 2ghc, and iced bottled water, 750ml or medium size, be retailed at 3ghc.

These reviews serve as a guide to all regional associations and to ensure uniformity across the country.  The NEC also cautions that there might be slight variations across regions due to haulage to remote and distant areas.

A bag of sachet water, 500ml by 30, will now sell at 7ghc from the retail trucks. Mini shops will now retail a bag of sachet at 9ghc per bag. These reviews take effect from Monday September 19, 2022

The price reviews have been necessitated by rising cost of inputs such as fuel and packaging materials which are mainly IMPORTED, increases in electricity and water which took effect from September 1, 2022.

 Per NASPAWAP’s previous review in March 2022, the dollar was in the region of 8.5ghc.  Currently, it is inching up to 10ghc.  Fuel prices have significantly gone up since our last review.  It was 9 and now it is 14.5ghc, which is 61 % change since. March 23, 2022. 

The suggested adjustment is to help producers cover their production costs. 

The association is appealing to consumers to bare with them although they appreciate the difficulties consumers have to go through to endure these hardships.
