A press release sighted by GhanaWeb and signed by the association’s interim Public Relations Officer, Korsi Asiseh said: “The Sachet Drinking / Mineral Water Producers / Manufacturers wish to inform its cherished customers and the general public, that the minimum price of a bag of sachet water has been increased from GH¢2.00 to GH¢2.50.
“However, some producers are still selling at the old price but by Monday 8, 2021, they will increase the price to GH¢2.50,” it added.
