Bread price increases
The price of a 450 g loaf of bread will be increased by Rs. 5.00 from midnight today (11), says the Bakery Owners Association.
This is in view of the price increases in LP gas, wheat flour and milk powder earlier in the day.
Prima Ceylon and Serendib Flour Mills raised the wheat flour price by Rs. 10.00 per kg this morning.
Canteen owners too, have announced increases in the prices of a packet of rice and curry, a Kottu and a cup of milk tea.
The Ceylon Petroleum Corporation has also requested the government to increase fuel prices.
