It is expected that bread will rise in price by 10 tetris since September 2015, Georgia Online news website said.
The producers said that the price increase is due to higher prices for flour.
"Unfortunately, we cannot maintain the prices for bread," general director of "Ipkli" Shakro Bakuradze said. "If we can do this before September, it will be fine. If the prices for flour will not be settled and will remain as they are today, the prices for bread will definitely increase. Bread will be more expensive by about 10 tetris. The reason for this is that the price of a bag of flour from June 10 increased from 37 to 44 laris. This means a lot. The increase of the tariff for electricity will also have an impact. The depreciation of the lari is also added to this. If it continues like this I do not know what will follow it."
Malkhaz Dolidze, chairman of the Association of Bread Producers predicts the rise in prices for bread as well. He said that the rise in prices is already noticeable, and if no specific measures are taken, the price increase is inevitable.
