Water sold in white nylon re-enters the market as price of sachet water rises


As the cost of sachet water rises as a result of inflation, iced water sold in transparent white nylon bags has returned.

Two nylon bags filled with chilled water were being sold by a woman in an Ibadan park for N50.

In the park, curious people pulled out their phones to take videos.

This is because, just a few months ago, a bag containing twenty sachets of water was sold for N150; today, it averages N350. It is apparently now N50 for a single sachet, which used to sell for N10.

Because sachet water was cheap, iced water sales stopped years ago. But now it’s returned.

Below is a video of the woman selling iced water.
