Price of bread to rise

The cost of a loaf of bread is set to rise between 10% and 20% because of record grain prices, according to the Dutch bakery association.

The average loaf now costs €1.70. The price of a ton of wheat on the international grain markets has gone up from €120 to €220, partly due to poor harvests.
