There’s Nothing We Can Do, Pure Water Is Reaching N100 Per Sachet – ATWAP

According to the Association of Table Waters Producers (ATWAP), the high cost of production ingredients may result in pure water being marketed for as much as N100 each sachet.

According to reports, the association disclosed this information on Tuesday at a news conference about the impact of growing packaging material production costs in Nigeria that was conducted in Lagos.

Clementina Ativie, the president of the association, stated that they have been dealing with a number of difficulties, including the high price of diesel, power outages, and high production costs.

He added that the current price of water sales reflects the country’s situation, and there is nothing they can do about it.

He said, “Pure water is sold for N50 now, and it is even going up to N100 per one. At our own end, there’s nothing we can do. The cost of production is high.

As at last year December, we were buying materials (nylon) for N1,100 per KG. The 6 kg of nylon is now N3,600/N3,700. The cost of treatment is also high. The increment for these materials comes at 3 times in one week. It is also difficult for us to increase the price of water.

If ordinary Nigerians can’t afford pure water, I don’t know where we are going. Every water producer is funding the pure water factory on personal pockets or borrowed money.

Many banks don’t give pure water producers loans. We want Nigerians to bear with us. We don’t want Nigerians to buy water at more than N20 per sachet. The cost of production including the price of diesel has affected so many things.”
