The price will drop by 10 cent.

Tesco, Aldi and Lidl will cut the price of their own-brand bread from today.

All three supermarkets will reduce the price of their standard loaves by 10 cent.

Titled the Agricultural and Food Supply Chain Bill 2022, it provides for the establishment of a new independent statutory body, An Rialálaí Agraibhia, or agri-food regulator, which will have powers to levy fines of up to €10m on buyers, including retailers, food producers and processors who engage in unfair trading practices with farmers and other suppliers.
