Bakery owners announced a Rs. 2 increase in the price of bread.
They said prices of wheat flour based food items would be increased as well.
Bakery owners warned of an increase in certain food items a few days back following the increase in wheat flour prices.
The price of a kilo of wheat flour has been increased between Rs. 3 and Rs. 4.
The Association says that a price hike in some food items was inevitable due to the increase in wheat flour and gas prices.
Meanwhile, the Consumer Affairs Authority (CAA) has said it would take legal action against the wheat flour importers for increasing prices without approval.
