Bread prices upped

The price of a loaf of bread (450gm) will be increased by Rs. 05 with effect from midnight today (03) , Bakery Owners' Association said.

The decision comes as a result of the price hike of one kilogram of Prima wheat flour by Rs 5.

Noting that the price of eggs, margarine, potatoes and onions which are ingredients used for bakery goods, the association says that prices of all bakery goods will be upped from Rs. 1-5.

Meanwhile, the All-island Canteen Owners' Association too has taken measures to increase the price of a Kottu by Rs. 05.
