Costs in South Africa are skyrocketing and never seem to come down. When we compare South Africa’s cost of living to other countries one of the things we always look at is the cost of our bread in SA compared to the cost of the bread in another country. The cost of bread increased when our VAT increased from 14% to 15%. MoneyPanda decided to compare the cost of bread over the last 10 years and see how much it’s increased so that we can see if the spike is excessive. Check out how much we paid for bread in South Africa in 2009 compared to 2019.
