PRICE OF BREAD – The prices of bread in some bakeries increased due to the high costs of sugar and flour in the Philippines now.
The prices of several goods and commodities in the Philippines took an upward movement. According to the manufacturers of some of these products, the raw materials used in producing them have higher costs now.

Amid the financial struggles experienced by most Filipinos now, several bakeries were also left with no choice but to increase the price of bread so they can still make profits.

Panaderong Pilipino President Chito Galvez said that all ingredients in baking increased. He cited that the price of pandesal in some bakeries has reached P3 or P4 each. Wheat reportedly increased in price as well as flour.
Some bakeries increased the price of their pandesal by 50 cents and a P1 increase in other pieces of bread. Baker Junie Erlano expressed that they don’t want to disappoint their customers by adjusting the sizes of bread so they would rather implement a price increase. Bread is just one of the products sold in the country that are facing a price increase now.
