Bread is getting more expensive than ever.

The Italian Baker Sdn Bhd announced that except for one of its popular main products, the Massimo White Sandwich Loaf, the price of other Massimo bread products would be increased.

The price will increase by 10 to 60 sen, starting from the 15 of this month.

Citing a statement, Sin Chew quoted the company chairman, Jeremy Goon, saying that the price of Massimo White Sandwich Loaf will stay the same.

The reason is to help Malaysian families cope with inflation, typically a broad measure of the overall price increase or the cost of living in a country.

We have confirmed that the 400g and 600g White Sandwich Loaf will remain at RM2.80 and RM4, respectively.

Bread For All

Goon said white bread should be an affordable staple for everyone, especially during the economic downturn.

He also assured consumers that they will continue to enjoy the same delicious taste and exceptional quality at the same affordable price.

The Italian Baker Sdn Bhd acknowledges that it is deeply affected by global and local inflation, which also affects other industries.

Goon said the company faces rising logistics costs and prices for raw materials, including all baking ingredients.

We have held out from raising prices for as long as we could and will maintain the price of the Massimo White Sandwich Loaf for the foreseeable future.

The Italian Baker last increased its prices in January 2022, citing the rise in raw materials prices.
