The price of a loaf of bread has been increased from today, the All-island Bakery Owners Association said.
Accordingly the price of a 450g loaf of bread has been increased by Rs 5.
The All-island Bakery Owners Association were in talks to increase the price of bakery products after Prima Ceylon increased the price of wheat flour by Rs 5 per kilo over the weekend.
Prima had said that the price of wheat flour was being sold at Rs 100 a kilo.
The increase was attributed to the rising prices in the global market and the depreciation of the Sri Lankan Rupee against the US dollar. (Colombo Gazette)
