Bakery product prices increase over political fib

The All Ceylon Bakery Owners’ Association said that if the price of wheat flour is increased on the pretext that rice production has increased, they would be forced to increase the price of all bakery products.

They noted that if the rice production in the country had increased, then the first step should have been to stop the import of rice into the country.

Therefore the All Ceylon Bakery Owners’ Association said that instead, the government was continuing to import rice into the country creating an excess in rice stocks and certain politicians were making statements that a wheat flour tax would be charged.
