The increased bread prices have been brought down immediately.
Chairman of All Ceylon Bakery Owners’ Association N.K. Jayawardena said that this decision was taken due to the price hike of wheat flour companies this morning.
From the 16th, companies increased the price of wheat flour by Rs 8.16.
Accordingly the All Ceylon Bakery Owners Association increased the price of a 450g loaf of bread by Rs.
However, the decision to reduce the price of bread from today is due to the agreements of the companies to refund the money spent on wheat flour, he added.
