Chattogram Bureau :
The prices of eggs, flour and rice have risen again this week in the upward market. Besides, prices of fish, chicken and vegetables are also high. Buyers are getting more and more confident with such high prices.
A visit to various markets in the city yesterday showed that the price of a 50kg bag of rice has gone up from around Tk200 to Tk300 in the retail market. The price of a dozen eggs has increased by another Tk10. A dozen eggs are being sold in the market for Tk130. Flour has increased by Tk2 per kg depending on the company.
Traders say wheat prices are higher now. Wheat is used to make chicken feed. Wheat prices were higher even in the busy season this year.
That is why the price of chicken food is higher and therefore the price of egg is higher. For the same reason, the price of flour is higher.
