A picture of Bakers Inn bread has circulated on social media suggesting that the company is now selling bread at $18.10. This means that the price is likely higher in locations and parallel markets since they get supplied by the company.
Bread was scarce in the country this year after wheat reserves got depleted. The situation is likely to be prolonged considering that the Winter Wheat production registered a poor harvest due to power cuts and drought.
Prices of other commodities have also been going up thereby eroding salaries of workers which have remained unchanged.
