Additionally, it issued a warning that minor discrepancies across regions could exist as a result of shipping goods to far-off locations. “Iced water bottles of 500 ml should be sold for GHC 2, while iced water bottles of 750 ml or more should be sold for GHC 3.
For 50 pesewas, water in iced sachets is suggested. Bags of sachet water will now be sold from retail trucks for Gh7. A bag of sachets will now be sold at little stores for GH 9 per bag. “These changes go effective on September 19, 2022, Monday,” it read.
The increase in power and water tariffs that went into effect on September 1, 2022, as well as the growing cost of inputs like gasoline and packaging materials, which are primarily imported, have forced pricing evaluations, according to the Sachet and Packaged Water Producers Association.
