Ibrahim Says Flour Stocks Run Out Today, Holds Minister of Economy Responsible

Bakery Owners’ Syndicate Head, Ali Ibrahim, on Wednesday told the National News Agency that the study that was being prepared by Caretaker Minister of Economy, Raoul Nehme, regarding the price of a bundle of bread and its reduction once the dollar exchange rate drops, was “unfair to the bakeries,” noting that the price changes should take into consideration the increasing price of diesel. 

Moreover, he warned that the remaining stock of flour at bakeries was running out today, also blaming Minister Nehme in this regard. 

It is noteworthy that some bakeries announced that they will stop working today due to lack of flour.
