The president of the Sri Lanka Bakeries Association, NK. Jayawardena, has made a statement that even with the recent 18% increase in electricity bills, the prices of bakery products, including bread, will remain unchanged.
Mr. Jayawardena acknowledged that the electricity bill hike will have a notable impact on the industry and that consumers are already grappling with economic challenges. However, he emphasized the commitment of bakeries to ensure that people can continue to enjoy the affordability of bread and bakery items.
With unwavering dedication to providing essential and affordable food options, the Sri Lankan bakeries have pledged not to pass on the increased electricity costs to consumers.
