BUJUMBURA April 5th (ABP) – The rise in the price of bread is becoming more and more a reality in the main bakeries in the city of Bujumbura, a check on the site by ABP has revealed.
For example, at the Trianon bakery, the main supplier of bread in the city of Bujumbura, since Thursday March 31, 2022, it has revised the price of this product upwards, rising respectively from 1900 to 2200 BIF per piece for bread commonly called “cut breads”, i.e. an increase of 300 BIF and from 1,000 to 1,200 BIF for “French bread”, i.e. an increase of 200BIF.
Moreover, in certain districts where “French bread” was bought at 1200 BIF, the piece currently sells for between 1400 and 1500BIF, whereas the bread commonly “baguette” which was bought at 1500 BIF is sold at 1600 BIF in some shops.
The price of double tomato bread also increased by 300BIF, rising from 3,500 to 3,800BIF, while the baguette rose from 1,600 BIF to 1,900 BIF. Questioned on this subject on Monday April 4, one of the managers of the TRIANON bakery indicated that this upward revision of the price of bread was dictated by the dizzying rise in the price of flour and the increase in the price of diesel fuel.
Note that the TRIANON bakery has just followed in the footsteps of the artisanal bakeries of the city of Bujumbura whose upward revision of the price of bread was decided two weeks ago.
