A shortage of bread looms in the Ashanti Region as the regional branch of the Ghana National Flour Users Association plans to strike on 13 and 14 March 2019.

They have also resolved to increase the price of bread and other flour products in the region.

The decision is as a result of high cost of flour and other necessities used in baking bread, President of the bakers association, Comfort Akotua told Kumasi FM's Elisha Adarkwah in an interview.

She said flour and other products used in baking bread have been increased about five times within this month, which is making them run at a loss.

A bag of flour which was sold at GHS120, she said, is now sold at GHS165, adding that the price of sugar has also been increased from GHS140 to GHS185.

The price of bread, she noted, will go up from Thursday, 14 March 2019.

Madam Akotua disclosed that a loaf of bread, which currently sells at GHS2 will be GHS3.
