Bread price increased by Rs.4 from midnight today
The price of a loaf of bread (450g) will be increased by Rs.4 from midnight today, the All Island Bakery Owners’ Association stated.
Earlier, it was reported that the price of a loaf of bread would be increased by Rs. 2.50 – 5.00 due to the price of wheat flour increasing. A final decision in this regard was to be taken after 20 March by the All Island Bakery Owners’ Association.
The price of a kilogram of Prima wheat flour was increased by Rs. 7.20 from on 12 March. It is reported that this is in line with the increase in the tax imposed on imported wheat.
