CAA raids to detect low-weight bread sellers



Frequent raids will be conducted across the country to find vendors who sell low-weight bread, Consumer Affairs Authority (CAA) Chairman Shantha Niriella said.

Accordingly, legal action has been taken against 100 people for selling low-weight bread.

The weight of a loaf of bread is 450 grams. Any individual business owner who sells bread at low-weight will be fined between Rs.1,000 to Rs.10,000 and a company will be fined between Rs.10,000 to Rs.100,000.

The CAA also informed the people to report any complaints related to the sale of bread at higher prices to the ‘1977’ hotline number.
