of Bakeries announced Tuesday that the Association of Mill owners was not a party to the agreement signed between the
Ministry of Economy and the Bakery Unions. The Union added that mills were not
informed of the Economy and Trade Minister’s decision to set a unified sale
price for flour.
The Union of Bakeries said in
a statement that mills cannot commit to the flour’s final price.
The Union called on the
Minister of Economy Nicolas Nahas to build on the current prices of wheat and
bran and on the milling fees in order to set an effective flour price based on
specific and scientific data, not on predictions.
