Sachet water prices to increase by 60 pesewas today

Sachet water prices to increase by 60 pesewas today

Ghanaians will have to pay more for bottled and sachet water starting today, Monday, October 31, 2022.

This is in response to the National Association of Sachet and Packaged Water Producers’ recommendation that sachet water prices rise by 60 pesewas.

It was also suggested that 500ml bottled water be sold for GH2.50, 750ml bottled water or medium size be sold for GH3.50, and 1.5-litre bottled water be sold for GH5.

The Association attributed the increase to rising fuel prices and other input costs.

The Ghana Plastic Manufacturers Association (GPMA), for example, announced new prices for plastic films and preforms used in sachet and bottled water packaging.

Prior to today, the most recent price increase occurred on September 19.
