The price of a kilogramme of wheat flour would be increased by Rs.8 with effect from midnight today, the Serendib Flour Mills (SFML) (Pvt.) Ltd said.
The company has already informed this regard to its agents.
The company said the decision was taken due to uncontrollable external factors caused to the flour industry for a long time.
It said the rapid depreciation of the Sri Lankan rupee (LKR) against the US Dollar (USD) caused the first reason to increase the flour price. (Chaturanga Samarawickrama)
