(COLOMBO, LANKAPUVATH) – The price of a loaf of bread will be increased by Rs. 2 with effect from midnight today (Sept 06), the Bakery Owners Association said.
This is in line with the price hike announced by the Prima Ceylon (Private) Limited in wheat flour. The price of 1kg of wheat flour produced by the company was increased by Rs 5.50.
However, the Consumer Affairs Authority (CAA) stressed that legal action would be sought against Prima’s move to increase the wheat flour price without its approval.
