Ministry of Co-operatives and Internal trade has advised the Measurement Units, Standards and Services Department to increase the number and consistency of raids on bakeries to verify that the stipulated weight of a bread loaf is maintained.

“We have advised to increase the frequency and the number of raids on bakeries mainly to ensure that bakery owners maintain the standard weight of a bread loaf as well as to make sure that the standard price is maintained. We have received several complaints about bakeries that sell bread loaves for prices higher than the standard amount,” Ministry sources told Daily Mirror Online.

Meanwhile the official also stated that the Ministry has written to wheat flour importing companies, advising them to withdraw the recent flour price hike. (Lakna Paranamanna)

    I wonder why these raids are on only during a price hikes, then when people forget about the hike, there are no raids, this is the state of affairs, very pity indeed

    We expect a lot more from a minister of the portfolio rather than spying and investigating here and there.

    Check the weight of a loaf of bread, and you'd notice that it is less than 300 grams, but a loaf of bread should be 450 grams!

    Typical.

    Blame it on the baker.

    We must get some hungry officers to raid the bakeries and
    eat all the bread and stuff.
