Bread prices to be increased from next week: Bakery Owners’ Association

If the price of wheat flour is not revised, the price of a loaf of bread will have to be increased by Rs. 10 from next Monday, said the President of the All Ceylon Bakery Owners’ Association, M.K. Jayawardena.

The price of other bakery products could also go up by Rs. 5-10, he said.

The decision was taken after the price of flour used for bakery products was increased by Rs. 18 from last Friday, Jayawardena said.

“We urge the government to intervene and find a solution to this problem immediately. If the price of flour is revised with less money after discussions, more relief can be given,” he said.
