Small bakers squeezed

2008-01-16 00:00

SMALL bakeries will continue to be subordinate to bigger milling companies as long as no regulatory measures are put in place to control the wheat industry, a local bakery said yesterday.

The baker was speaking following the announcement by Tiger Brands that it was increasing its bread price by 40 cents. He said that the Wheat Board, which used to govern the wheat industry, dissolved causing a number of negative factors to infiltrate the industry. He said that while the board was in operation, prices were regulated satisfactorily. publishes all comments posted on articles provided that they adhere to our Comments Policy.
