Bread prices have never risen so often – baker

A BAKER says he has seen more increases in the price of bread over the past couple of years than ever before.
Martin Senner, of Senner’s Bakery, pictured, said the cost of wheat flour continues to rise, but he would try and absorb some of the increase before passing it onto his customers.
‘The main reason is that the flour prices are up,’ he said. ‘Our two main suppliers are putting their prices up – one did it on 1 January and the other is doing it on 31 January.
‘Costs are going up all around because of poor harvests. We’ve had more bread price increases over the last few years than ever before.
‘I will try and carry the increases for a couple of months but eventually some will be passed on.’
