All bakery products, except bread, would be increased by Rs. 5 from midnight today (15) because of the recent fuel price hike and domestic gas price hike, the All Island Bakery Owners’ Association (AIBOA) said.

“We have to recover our costs to protect bakery industry, we are compelled to increase the prices of bakery products,” AIBOA Chairman N.K. Jayawardane said in Gampaha while speaking to the media.

“However the price of a loaf of bread will not be increased now considering the people,” Mr Jayawardane said.

“If the Government failed to take any action to provide relief for bakery owners, the price of a loaf of bread would have to be increased by Rs.10,” he added.(Chaturanga Samarawickrama)

    A bun needs additional Rs. 5/- due to higher fuel prices!!!

    Saradiel Sunday, 15 July 2018 02:10 PM

    I don't support the fuel price increase. However the increase is Rs. 10/- or so per litre. Increase of a bun is 5/-. So basically it takes a litre of fuel to make 2 buns as an average as per the bakery owners. Sounds fishy, funny and whatever you may call.

    And then a former gramaniladari from Pollonnaruwa said if you don't have bread eat cakes.

    Bakeries make more than 100% gross margin in all other non-bread products.

    It's what we should do and teach the bakers a lesson. Problem is we do not have consumer resistance in this country!

    Harini Sunday, 15 July 2018 05:33 PM

    Good, let's just boycott all bakery products altogether. May help us conserve money and eat healthier and avoid contaminated food, prevent juvenile diabetes etc. Teach these guys a lesson. Saradiel's comment is spot on. Bake at home if you must or eat healthier substitutes for bakery goods.

    Did the paankarayas get the cabinet nod?

    Eat your rice and vegetables and be a healthy nation. Sugar, fat and flour are the worst for your health. Be smart!

    It's time for public to respond. "Boycott" and do not buy .
