“In the last six months, one truck of flour that we used to buy at less than N6m is now N9m.

The association also urged the Federal Government to reduce regulatory roadblocks in the sector calling for NAFDAC to be the sole regulator of bakeries.

The Federal Competition and Consumer Protection Commission has not made a comment on the price hike.
