Bread Shortage in Fujairah causes Tempers to Rise

The Gulf News reports today:

“Residents in Fujairah have been left without bread after a number of bakeries stopped supply to grocery shops over a price dispute with the Fujairah Municipality.

“Small bread makers from the East Coast took the drastic measure after the municipality ordered them to rollback bread prices. Recently, bakeries raised the price of a Lebanese bread to Dh3, a 50 fils increase.”

To read about the price increases, the bread shortages and the angry consumer reactions go to this link:
