Price of bakery products increased

The price of bakery products including bread will be increased from tomorrow, the All Ceylon Bakery Owners Association said.

The move comes after the government increased the price of flour last week by Rs. 4-6 a kilo.

In a news report today bakery owners had said that some 2000 bakeries had been forced to shut down in the recent past owing to the inability to continue with their business.

The bakery owners had said that the increase in the price of flour and the subsequent increase in the price of bakery products had hurt their business.
