Bread price up by Rs. 5

Other bakery items also up :

The price of a basic loaf of bread was increased by Rs. 5 yesterday, in lieu of the increase of the wheat flour which went up by Rs. 8 on Monday, the All Ceylon Bakery Owners Association said.

Chairman of the Association N.K Jayawardena told news media that the Association had decided to increase the price of a loaf of bread by Rs. 5 due to the increase in the cost of wheat flour.

“The Association has decided to increase the price of bread by Rs. 5, but we have made provision for the owners to increase the prices of other bakery products in a manner that will not impact the consumers. We have requested the owners to specify their own retail price on other products.” he said. The price of bakery products specifically bread was last increased in September 2018, after the Bakery Owners association lamented that it was due to the additional tax on palm oil. Wheat flour was also increased by Rs. 5 at the same time.
