LAHORE: The Flour Mills Association has increased price of flour by Rs. 4.50 per kilogram in Punjab today, SAMAA reported on Thursday.
Punjab Flour Mills Association has said that the wheat price has been increased by the government so it had no choice but to mount flour price.
After this price hike, now 20 kilograms’ each flour bag will cost additional Rs. 85 to consumers; the ex-mill price of 20 kgs flour bag has jumped from Rs. 565 to 650 while the retail price to Rs. 675 per bag.
The consumers say that this is an unjustified price hike of flour in the province while the Punjab Government has vowed to make sure supply of flour to consumers on old rates as this latest increase in flour price has been done by the flour mills association on its own. SAMAA
