Antoine Seif: Their decisions take us back to the Stone Age

Today, a new table of fuel prices was issued, as a can of diesel decreased by 66 thousand, and gas bottles by 44 thousand, while a can of gasoline rose by 4 thousand.

Living also, and in response to the statement of the Minister of Economy, Amin Salam, in which he reaffirms the necessity of limiting the production of flour from subsidized wheat to the production of Arabic bread only, while mills can produce other categories of flour using unsubsidized wheat, Antoine Seif, head of the Bakeries Syndicate in Mount Lebanon, confirmed that these decisions It takes us back to the “Stone Age”, calling not to be surprised by the prices of manakish, French bread and others, since the price of imported flour is four times higher than the price of subsidized flour.
He added in an interview with Sawt Beirut International that if action is not taken starting today to find a solution to buy wheat, which takes a month to reach Lebanon, we will not completely cut off the bundle of bread.
