Minister of Co-operatives and Internal Trade, Johnston Fernando said that the government has not given  much consideration into the increase of bread prices.

The minister said that it was not in the government’s interest to protect the American wheat farmers.

However, according to consumers, the increase in bread prices had drastically affected the  general public.

Meanwhile, the bakery owners said that they are compelled to increase the prices of bread due to the implementation of different taxes posed by the government from January next year.
