“These reviews serve as a guide to all regional associations and to ensure uniformity across the country,” the statement added.
These increases have been necessitated by the rising cost of inputs such as fuel and packaging materials, which are mainly imported.
The association further noted that increases in electricity and. water tariffs also contributed to the price increment.
