Altar Breads Price List (Pdf) revised April 2022

Altar Breads increase in prices from 1st April 2022

We are sorry to announce an increase in the price of our altar breads.

As you know the prices of utilities, flour and etc have been greatly increasing since 2019. We try hard to control our cost under this on-going inflation.

Altar breads stay fresh over a year in dry and airtight conditions. In order to minimize your cost, we suggest that you place orders with greater quantities of altar breads each time, since the same postage applies to all parcels under 2 kg. The weight of breads varies, but as a quick reference, an order of 5,000 2.9cm diameter small and 100 large altar breads should normally be fine.

The altar breads is the community’s main source of income and we are very grateful for your support. We remember you all in our prayer.

Many thanks
