The Consumer Affairs Authority states that it will take legal action against the bakery owners who increase the prices of their product including bread.

The Authority states that the wheat flour importing companies have not educated them so far about any price increase.

Wheat flour has been declared an essential commodity and its price cannot be increased adamantly without obtaining the permission from the Consumer Affairs Authority.

Therefore the Authority expects to take legal Acton against the two flour importers as well.

Meanwhile, our news team attempted several times over the phone to reach the management of Prima and Serendib companies to get their comment on the increase of wheat flour by 8 rupees per kilogram.

However, our efforts became futile as no competent authority of the two companies answered our phone.

However, chairman of the bakers union NK Jayawardana said that the price of a loaf of bread would be increased by 5 rupees effective midnight today.
