Sachet water will be $0.60 beginning Monday, October 31
According to the National Association of Sachet and Packaged Water Producers, the 500ml bottled water will cost Ghc2.50, medium-sized bottled water will cost Ghc3.50, and 1.5 litres of bottled water will cost Ghc5.
“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,” they noted in a statement.
“A bag of sachet water (500m1 x 30 sachets) will now sell at ¢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,” the statement added.
