The Bakeries Division in Khartoum State demanded to reconsider the price of subsidized bread in order to avoid bakeries leaving the production cycle, as the current pricing continued in light of the high production inputs.
In a statement to the Sudan News Agency (SUNA), the Secretary-General of the Bakeries Division, Al-Baqir Abdul Rahman, warned of the increases in flour subsidized by the Khartoum Food Security Company by 100 pounds per mobile, in a circular issued by it without referring to the cost committee of the state.
He pointed to the increase in the cost of yeast by 16 thousand per carton, as well as an increase in gas prices from companies without also referring to the cost committee, as the price of one thousand liters ranges between (8-13) thousand pounds, compared to the amount of (4) thousand pounds previously.
He added that there is an increase in the prices of oil, electricity, water, real estate rent and employment.
He revealed that 400 bakeries were out of service due to their dependence on gasoline, which was liberated in light of the current price of bread, pointing out that bakeries went out of business due to power outages due to the difficulty in working on generators with fuel whose price was liberated.
