Hard-pressed Zimbabweans rejoiced after Baker’s Inn Bakery announced substantial cuts to their popular bread prices. The bakery chain, a favourite of locals for years, said they want to make an affordable daily staple more accessible.
In an era of soaring costs of living and tight pockets, Baker’s Inn has come to the rescue. From today, their crispy loaves will cost significantly less.
“We have reduced the price of bread as a way to hold our local currency,” said CEO Ben Mavros. “Bread is a basic commodity and should thus be affordable and available to everybody. The new price of bread has been pegged at $ZWL5,800 wholesale, and $ZWL6,400 retail.”
The price drop comes as Zimbabwe grapples with inflation and rising living costs. Baker’s Inn said they support the govt’s fight against rising prices.
“This reduction is possible thanks to cost savings and efficiency gains we have made,” Mavros explained. “We want to share the benefits with customers.”
Locals celebrated the “price slash blessing”. Fans said it will make a real difference. “The kids will get their morning toast again,” said mum Sylvia Gono.
With bellies filled and smiles restored, grateful Zimbabweans hope other companies follow suit to help hard-working families. As one customer put it: “Baker’s Inn has baked us a break – now let’s spread the loaf love!”
