It has emerged that bread bakers in the Northern Region have declared a strike action over the high cost of flour.
These bakers, who provide a chunk of bread to consumers in the Northern Region, told GhOne Television in an interview monitored by Yen.com.gh that they keep incurring losses.
"The flour has increased by over 100 percent. We can't keep selling the bread at the same price we sell - which is 5 cedis. If we increase it too, they can't buy, so we are striking," a bread baker stated.
The strike action, which begins on Monday, August 30, is expected to affect bread consumers in the region as bakers make a case for the price of flour to reduce.

A loaf of bread that hitherto was going for 5 cedis in Kumasi now goes for between 7 and 10 cedis. Same prices have increased across other regional capitals.
