Price Of Bread Increases To $2.50

The price of bread has increased at some retailers in Zimbabwe to about $2.50 a loaf. The new prices came into effect this weekend. The old bread price was about $1.50

Zimbabweans have expressed shock at the new price. A customer that bought bread today at Innscor’s Bakers Inn in Mutare said they were shocked when they were asked to pay $5 for 2 loaves.

Some retailers have however maintained the old price of $1.50.

The prices of basic commodities have been going up due to the currency crisis faced by the country. The increase in fuel prices by about 150% on 12 January 2019 worsened the situation as retailers have noted the higher costs of business.

The current parallel market of the US dollar to RTGS balances is 1USD : 3.9 RTGS.

The government has said that retailers are taking advantage of the situation to profiteer.
