pure water bagsThe Wanted Children foundation has been carefully considering and prayer over starting up a small business to help with the Children’s Home sustainability. We know we cannot expect our running costs to regularly come from overseas, and continue to relay solely on the good will of others. While we are a charity, an INGO, we do need to think ahead! Based on the area where our home is located, our needs and the needs of the community, setting up a Water Sachet business will both provide clean safe drinking water to many as well has help bring in a profit to help continuing to run the Children’s home.


“Water packaged in bags, also known as water sachets, can be a very profitable business model when done properly. The most important considerations are the cost to produce the water bags and the selling price. This is the lowest cost way to package water due to the amount of plastic used. The average cost to produce a water bag with a size of 250-375 ml is less than $0.01 (USD) with a pure water for salewholesale price of ranging from $0.02 to $0.04. This is a very good markup with over 100% profit margin, and is most successful when selling in bulk to make a good profit. In many of the poorer countries worldwide, there is a very high demand for safe drinking water and bagged water is the best solution to provide safe drinking water at an affordable price. The key to having a successful water bagging plant is to be located in an area with a population of over 25,000-30,000 people that lack safe drinking water. The water bags do contain a smaller amount of water than most bottled water so people will need to buy more bags. Due to the low cost, it is a product that most people can easily afford and will buy. In areas with a larger population there are large water bagging or sachet plants that are making profits well over $100,000 USD. We have established and consulted with plants in several countries where the profits range from $10,000 to over $100,000 per month. Establishing a bagged water plant can easily be a very profitable business with low start up costs!”
