Prices of Bottled Water Increased by Two Yuan

Prices of bottled water increased by two yuanA number of branded bottled waters have increased their price by almost 10 to 15 percent since April because of the rising costs of materials and labor. Prices of some popular brands have also increased and other brands are expected to follow soon.

A storeowner said that he has been selling bottled water in his store for almost six years now and this is the first time that the prices have increased this high. A bottle of Yili mineral spring water is now 20 yuan and a bottle of C’estbon water is now at 18 yuan. Both bottled waters received an increase of two yuan each.

The sudden increase in raw materials and labor costs attributes to the new cost of bottled water. A deliveryman was usually paid 1.5 yuan per bottled delivered is now being paid 2 yuan. Because of this, some residents have decided to drink tap water instead.

Even with the increase of bottled water prices in April, residents can still purchase bottled water in some supermarkets that haven’t adjusted their retail prices to the new increased price.
