The year under report had also been eventful & much talked about because of the present global and local economic recession in terms of commodity price hike. The rise on consumer prices emerged mainly through external trade channels, with the growing exports of consumer necessities pulling their domestic prices to higher export prices; rising import prices of fuel oil, food items, other consumer items and production inputs feeding promptly and fully into domestic prices, except for partial shielding by the government in some fuel oil and fertilizer prices.
During the period under Report, the smooth business operation was hampered badly. The major reason behind that was the major fall of capacity utilization due to combined decreases of demand of our product mix together with very sharp rise of essential ingredients price in local market that ultimately played a negative role in our targeted sales achievement. On the other hand, due to severe entrance of foreign products a dumping price in the local market throughout the period, forcing the price downward and the competition to intensify. As a result profitability and turnover of our company were badly affected and the company has incurred losses.
During the year under review, company turnover of Tk113.42 million was generated from the sales of 553251 kg biscuits & 668380 kg bread.
