Industry and Commerce Minister Nqobizitha Ndlovu said that the government met with bakers and agreed that the price of bread should be reduced.
Ndlovu said that he is not aware of the current bread price but said that his Ministry and bakers are discussing the issue. In a brief interview with the Chronicle, Ndlovu said:
We met with bakers and they agreed that bread sells at $1,80 but I don’t know what the price is now. We met and we are discussing those issues.
We only try and intervene to minimise the effect on the people. On cost issues, National Foods and Innscor can help with that.
Bread remains in short supply on the market though, in small convenient shops in Harare, a loaf is being sold at $2.25.
