Price of Bread to Increase

The announcement many you have been waiting for will be made tomorrow: By how many dollars and cents will the price of a pack of sliced bread increase? The announcement will be made by the Minister of Food Security and Enterprise, Jose Mai. Today, Prime Minister John Briceno told the media that Cabinet studied various measures designed to keep the cost of bread to consumers as low as possible while ensuring that bakers get a fair return on production as the price of a 16-ounce bread will continue to be controlled.

Hon. John Briceno, Prime Minister of Belize: “We’ve had extensive discussions. We’re trying to find a way how we can minimize the increase in bread. Everybody understands that the price will have to go up and we’re trying to find creative ways in how we can hold down the price as best as we possibly can and Minister Mai who it is his responsibility he will be making an announcement tomorrow at the House meeting.”
