'Pure Water' To Sell At GHc0.40p While A Bag Goes For GHc8 From Mini Retail Shops Effective April 1


Information reaching Thinknewsonline.com indicate that iced sachet water, popularly known by Ghanaians as 'pure water' will be selling at GHc0.40p while a bag from mini retail shops will go for GHc8 effective April 1.


This was made known by the National Executive Committee (NEC) of the National Association of Sachet and Packaged Water Producers (Naspawap).


In a statement, it said "Iced sachet Water, popularly known as 'pure water' remains unchanged at GHc0.40p. A bag of sachet water, 500ml by 30pieces will now sell at GHc6 maximum from the retail trucks. Mini shops will now retail a bag of sachet water at GHc8 per bag maximum"


The statement also added that the reviews serves as a guide to all Regional Associations and to ensure uniformity across the country.


The Leadership of Naspawap further stressed that prices might differ slightly due to haulage to remote and distant areas.


Thinknewsonline.com has gathered that the new price reviews was necessitated by the rising cost of inputs, such as fuel and packaging materials which are mainly imported and produced from petroleum sources.


"Iced bottled water of 500ml will be retailed at GHc2 and iced bottled water of 750ml or medium size will be retailed at GHc2.50p and the 1.5L bottled water at GHc3.50p"
