Bread goes up by Rs.5
Bakery owners have raised the price of a 450 g loaf of bread by Rs. 5.00 effective at midnight today (Feb. 24).
The present price is Rs. 50 a loaf.
Secretary of their association Nimal Perera said government authorities have been informed of their decision.
He said the increase was needed in view of the fuel price hike that has affected transportation costs.
