The All Ceylon Bakery Owners’ Association (ACBOA) is to propose to the government to reduce the permitted weight of a loaf of bread to reduce prices.

According to ACBOA President N.K. Jayawardene, if the weight of a loaf of bread is reduced by five grams, the price could also be lowered by Rs. 5.

The permitted weight of a leaf of bread is 450g.

"Only large-scale bakery owners are producing and selling bread as per the permitted weight and stick to the permitted price. However, bakery owners in rural areas bake and sell underweight bread at lower prices, " he said.

Due to the wheat flour prices being increased by Rs. 17.50 by the main flour companies, the bakery owners have increased the price of a loaf of bread by Rs. 10, he said. (Chaturanga Samarawickrama)

    Where do we get a loaf weighing 450 grams. It's all bloated with additional yeast.

    why expect govt. to change in any form, you all given the full power by the present government to produce and sell any product at your wish.

    What’s the difference? We have to pay more for the bread anyway, reducing the weight or increasing price.
