The National Milling Company (NAMILCO) has raised the price of flour in response to global wheat prices that have soared in recent months.According to an advisory NAMILCO indicates that as of October 23,Nike NFL Jerseys China, 2010,Wholesale NFL Jerseys USA, their prices will be increased by a value somewhere between three and seven percent.The company also went further to translate that increase to what should be seen on the street in an effort to protect consumers.
