Bread price up by Rs 20


The price of a loaf of bread (450g) was increased by Rs 20 with effect from midnight yesterday (12). This was announced by the All Ceylon Bakery Owners Association (ACBOA). They said the price of a loaf of bread, which was Rs 170, will now be Rs 190.

Responding to query from Ceylon Today, ACBOA Chairman N.K. Jayawardena said other bakery products would also go up by 10 rupees.

ACBOA previously increased the price of a loaf of bread to Rs170 on 20 May 2022.

Jayawardana noted that the ACBOA was forced increase prices due to the decision taken by wheat flour companies to increase the price of flour by Rs 34 from midnight on 11 July.
